“Asbestos Release During Building Demolition Activities”

1993:28: Millette

Environmental Choices Technical Supplement, March/April 1993


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory (RREL) monitored block-wide building demolition and debris disposal activities at Santa Cruz and Watsonville, California following the 1989 earthquake; an implosion demolition of a 26-story building in Cincinnati, Ohio; the demolition of eight wooden barracks at Fort Bliss, Texas; and the demolition of two school buildings in Fairbanks, Alaska to evaluate if the demolition activities and their associated dust control practices were able to prevent downwind elevations of asbestos concentrations and to measure the concomitant worker exposure levels.
