Removing Asbestos from Water Sources

People are often aware of the potential hazards of inhaling asbestos fibers. However, fewer people are
aware of the risk of exposure to asbestos in water sources. Asbestos in water sources has been shown
to increase the risk for developing intestinal polyps and could cause other medical conditions. Due
to action from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) over the past two decades, public water suppliers
are required to monitor the quality of their water and determine the level of asbestos present.

Water suppliers must collect samples of their water and analyze them when ordered by the EPA. The EPA
has determined that a safe level of asbestos present in water is anything less than seven million fibers
per liter of water. If it asbestos increases above this level, the water supplier is required to monitor
the level over the next few months. If the levels continue to stay above seven million fibers per liter,
the supplier is forced to reduce the amount of asbestos in the water.

Asbestos can be removed from water sources with three different treatment methods of filtration and
treatment. If asbestos levels remain above a safe amount, the water provider is required to inform public
media outlets about the problem and may have to supply alternative drinking water to reduce health risks.
