Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

City awarded grant to remove asbestos from 20 structures

The City of Mt. Pleasant has recently been awarded a grant of nearly $200,000 to cleanup asbestos from nearly 20 building structures. The grant comes from the Environmental Protection Agency and will focus mainly on the Mt. Pleasant Center.

The Mt. Pleasant Center spans across nearly 300 acres and contains 21 different structures, many of which have been closed because of the asbestos contamination.

Tunnels, a road network and a power plant are also a part of the center. The city does not know what they will use when it reopens. Residents will help decide and the city commission will make a final vote later this year.

Asbestos exposure has been linked to the development of a rare and aggressive cancer called Mesothelioma, contact the asbestos help center if this has happened to you or a family member.
