LegalView Updates Mesothelioma Site with Reports of Controversial Asbestos Clean-Up Method Used By EPA

Share Article

LegalView informs readers of an alternative and questionable asbestos removal method that is being used by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on an apartment building in Texas. Asbestos is one of the main causes of an incurable form of cancer known as mesothelioma and even minimum asbestos exposure can have adverse affects years later.

LegalView.com, the number one source for everything legal on the Web, recently reported on its mesothelioma blog that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has authorized the use of a controversial method for asbestos cleanup and disposal. The cleanup was to be conducted at an apartment complex in Fort Worth, Texas, using the controversial process is known as the "wet method" and consists of a building being doused with a foam substance. The building or structure is then torn down. The wet foam is used, in theory, to prevent asbestos dust and particles from being kicked up during the deconstruction of the building. The destroyed structure will then be carted off to a landfill that is authorized to hold asbestos contaminants. LegalView reported this new development on its mesothelioma blog. Additionally, LegalView offers mesothelioma victims continually updated news on mesothelioma treatments as well as how to recognize the symptoms of asbestos exposure and what to do about it. LegalView also presents a variety of ways to reach experienced mesothelioma attorneys in a mesothelioma law firm that have expertise on how to file a mesothelioma lawsuit.

There are several ways that asbestos can be removed but the wet method has been continually debated and several watchdog organizations have expressed their concerns with the demolition of the vacant 2,200 square-foot apartment complex. While concerns exist, according to news reports, not enough support from the environmental watchdog groups was garnered to halt the wet method testing on the complex. However, for those living in the area or anyone who feels that they may have been previously exposed to asbestos, contact a mesothelioma lawyer, who will be able to offer advice on what should be done if a mesothelioma diagnosis occurs.

LegalView continues to provide the most relevant developments on asbestos and mesothelioma, offering its readers a large compilation of resources and information at its mesothelioma information portal.
