Spokane, Washington was once the site of a WR Grace insulation factory. In that factory, the company produced dangerous asbestos insulation. In the wake of Libby, Montana's status as a health emergency site, the US Environmental Protection Agency is checking into the possibility of asbestos contamination in other WR Grace sites.
The EPA is now conducting soil samples at nine homes near the former site of WR Grace's factory. If those samples come back positive for asbestos, it could lead to further soil testing and some air tests as well. The EPA wants to be absolutely sure that the people of Spokane have not been injured by decades old asbestos.
