Asbestos in Soil

Hazardous Materials

Asbestos is commonly found in soil and fill material associated with commercial and residential construction. Asbestos in soil is a risk to human health when fibres become airborne and are inhaled. The risk of inhaling asbestos fibres depends on the type and amount of asbestos material in the soil and the degree to which the soil is disturbed.
