Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Cottrellville Township and two companies cited for asbestos violations

A citation was given by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to Cottrellville Township and two construction firms for violating asbestos laws, an article by The Times Herald stated on March 1.

The township and the two construction companies reportedly committed negligence in tearing down 12 cabins and a home at 8559 North River Road. DEQ analyst Tammy Bell said the organization was not properly informed of the demolition, and the township did not test for asbestos prior to demolition. Though Bell confirmed that asbestos was present in the demolition site, the parties involved were only given citation because the samples were fortunately not capable of polluting the air.

Many people unfortunately develop mesothelioma cancer after being exposed to asbestos minerals by negligent parties. The cancer that affects the lungs is often fatal and effective treatments for mesothelioma have not yet been proven.
