Human Health Risks from Naturally Occurring Asbestos
Since the late 1970’s, numerous scientific studies have identified risks to human health from exposure to naturally occurring asbestos. The Atlas Asbestos Mine site inside CCMA was listed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a superfund site in 1983. As part of the clean-up of the Atlas Site, EPA completed a CCMA Asbestos Exposure and Human Health Risk Assessment in 2008 to help BLM evaluate the risk to human health from BLM’s land use authorizations on public lands in the ACEC. For more Information regarding Naturally Occurring Asbestos, please refer to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Diseases Registry (ATSDR) website.
