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.

City of Beloit settles asbestos lawsuit

An asbestos lawsuit against the city of Beloit, Wis. has now been settled and the city will pay $270,000 as a result.

A man sued the city in 2009 when he claimed that the city did not discuss asbestos problems in a building that the company had purchased 1998. The building was previously owned by the city and was a public-works office.

The city provided a letter to the man that stated that the building was cleared of asbestos before it was bought. In 2008, the man found asbestos in the building. The city agreed to pay the money in order to settle the allegations. Asbestos is known to be the primary cause of a rare lung disease, mesothelioma.

Asbestos dumped illegally in Ohio

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has announced that they are still looking for the individuals that dumped 60 bags of asbestos material in two areas in Ohio in 2010.

Investigators found that one area had 37 bags and the other had 23. The origins of the asbestos is unknown at this point, but it is suggested that both dump sites were done by the same individual or individuals.

On December 31, a third dump site was found and the EPA announced that they are stepping up the investigation on the issue in order to prevent anymore damage to be done.
