Replacing Asbestos Cement Pipes

Most cities have formally recognized the problems associated with asbestos cement pipes. Asbestos cement pipes have been installed in some places since the 1930s, and over time have deteriorated and contaminated drinking water sources with dangerous levels of asbestos. Asbestos exposure can contribute to long term medical conditions, which may not even appear until many years after the exposure incident.

Recognizing the problem of asbestos cement pipes is a step in the right direction as it forces city governments to take action to rectify the situation. However, just because a city recognizes they have a problem with high asbestos levels doesn’t mean that they have the financial means to fix the problem in a timely manner.

Especially as the nation faces budget cuts during our financial crisis, cities may feel strained for resources. For this reason, sometimes asbestos pipe removal is delayed or even under-prioritized as the city puts its budget to other uses, and the problem of asbestos in drinking water is not resolved.
