A developer that was sued by the attorney general in 2009 after a project he was working on was stopped, now must pay $100,000 for violating asbestos laws.
Officials with the Environmental Protection Agency stopped the program in 2009 after it was found that the workers handled asbestos illegally by not taking the accurate precautions to make sure that the asbestos particles did not become airborne.
Once airborne, asbestos particles can become toxic and can lead to lung cancer and other diseases. Asbestos was illegally removed from pipes and were also disposed of improperly. The developer has now been ordered to pay $100,000 for violating the law.
