Illinois Beach Deemed Safe

The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry has stated that "recreational use of [Illinois Beach State Park] is not expected to harm people's health." This statement comes after 201 air samples were taken while activities such as volleyball, soccer, raking, jogging and playing in the sand were performed. Of the 201 samples, three came back with concerning amounts of asbestos.

According to the ATSDR, the asbestos can be kept under control by the park's beach sweeping program. However, the president of the Illinois Dunesland Preservation Society is calling for more testing. According to him, the current tests may have had skewed results because of the way in which they were carried out. Both agree, however, that any asbestos that is found on the beach should be avoided.

If you or someone you know has been exposed to asbestos, contact the Illinois mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-781-3955.
