Asbestos found near South Carolina roadway project

A road project in South Carolina has been put on halt after asbestos was found near the area. The road project is called “Pennies for Progress” and will run by a new middle school that will be opening next year.

County officials approved $570,000 for asbestos cleanup in the area. The material must be removed in order to keep the residents of the community safe. Inhaling asbestos is the primary cause of mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer.

The asbestos removal will take six months to complete and will be beginning on July 26. A company in North Carolina was awarded the job. More funds were approved in order for the crew to look further around the area to make sure that all of the hazardous material are removed.

Mine company may be responsible for 400 deaths in Montana

According to health workers, WR Grace Co. may be responsible for 400 deaths in Libby, Montana for asbestos exposure. The Environmental Protection Agency has said assured people that the government will continue to clean up the toxic areas.

The mines associated with the company are vermiculite mines, which are natural mines that expand with heat. The first vermiculite mine was started in Libby and bought by WR Grace in the 1960s and operated them until the 1990s.

These mines also have a direct link to the state of Michigan because over 162,000 tons of the mine material was sent to Michigan  over a 40 year period. The process in which the plant exfoliated the ore to produce vermiculite attics released particles of asbestos into the air. Inhaling asbestos particles can lead to the development of a rare cancer, mesothelioma.
