Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

New York elementary school investigated for asbestos contamination

A follow-up investigation at David Elementary School on asbestos exposure was recently conducted by New York State investigators.

The investigation at Davis Elementary School was prompted in July of 2013 by Talk of the Sound, a local news source, and sparked the DOL and DEC to launch their own investigations.

Informants told the news source that John Gallagher, an Aramark consultant, and George Wood, a  plumbing contractor, were responsible for the improper removal and disposal of asbestos-laden floor tiles. Department of Labor spokeswoman, Jennifer Krinsky declined to comment on the ongoing investigation.
