An asbestos inspection has been ordered for a demolition site in Cedar Glen.
Mesothelioma Cancer News (Cedar Glen, California) – Workers at a demolition site in Cedar Glen have recently been notified that they are required to check the site for asbestos before proceeding. As reported by the San Bernardino Sun, the South Coast Air Quality Management District stated that an asbestos check is required despite the view that the toxic material will likely not be found.
Sam Atwood, a spokesman for AQMD, is quoted in the report as stating, “The property owner has to arrange for an asbestos site survey.” A fire in October 2003 destroyed hundreds of homes in the community, which led to officials ordering clearance of the remains. Cleanup plans for the area may possibly be halted pending the inspection.
