?This was the dumping ground?: Asbestos found near Davidson playground

AND FAMILY PUTTING UP COLLATERAL TO GET A FAMILY MEMBER OUT OF JAIL AND NOW THEY MAY LOSE THE HOME AFTER THE TEENAGER SKIPPED THE COURT DATE. IT IS A BIG CONCERN, SOIL CONTAMINATED WITH CANCER- CAUSING ASBESTOS HAS BEEN FOUND IN A LOCAL PARK. SOME POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS AREAS ARE JUST FEET AWAY FROM THE PLAYGROUND WHICH IS STILL OPEN. HERE IS A LIVE LOOK AT ROOSEVELT WILSON PARK IN DAVIDSON ON A DAY LIKE TODAY PACKED WITH KIDS. YOU CAN Assure SOME Class ARE THERE AS WELL AND ALSO YOU SEE THAT ORANGE CONSTRUCTION FENCING KIND OF BEHIND THE DAD IN THE SHIRT THAT’S BEEN PUT UP TO KEEP PEOPLE OUT OF THE AFFECTED AREAS OUTSIDE THE PLAYGROUND. ANTHONY CASTILLO INVESTIGATED WHETHER PEOPLE WHO’VE BEEN USING THIS PARK WERE AT RISK. WE ALL KNOW HOW DANGEROUS ASBESTOS IS, BUT WHEN AN OLD MILL WAS FREELY DUMPING AROUND DAVIDSON, IT WASN’T CONSIDERED LETHAL. NOW A PARK IS CLOSED AND FAMILIES ARE LEFT WONDERING IF THEY ARE EXPOSED AND IF SO, FOR HOW LONG. DAVIDSON’S ROOSEVELT WILSON PARK IS WHERE PEOPLE COME TO ENJOY THE SIGHTS AND SOUNDS OF NATURE.WHEN YOU VISIT THE PARK THESE DAYS, YOU WILL BE Accosted WITH PLASTERED SIGNS AND ORANGE Barricade WARNING OF ASBESTOS IN THE GROUND. IT IS LIKELY THERE FOR YEARS AS UNWILLING CHILDREN PLAYED IN THE AREA. WE Exactly PUT IT UP. THE TOWN PUT UP THIS SIGN WHEN IT CAME BACK POSITIVE AFTER AND OF OUR MENTAL ASSESSMENT FOR PLANT IMPROVEMENT PROJECT. I DIDN’T GET CLOSE BECAUSE AS SOON AS I SAW THE ORANGE, I SAID I’M NOT GOING THAT WAY. THEY CLOSED UP THESE AREAS AND IF ASBESTOS IS FOUND IN OLDER BUILDINGS, HOW DID IT GET HERE? THE DUMPED THE ASBESTOS ALL OVER HERE. THIS IS A DUMPING GROUND. THE CANCER-CAUSING MINERAL LEAKED IN FROM THE CAROLINA ASBESTOS PLANT UNTIL IT WAS USED IN THE 1960 S. THAT Represents IT COULD’VE BEEN THERE FOR LONGER THAN 50 YEARS.ASBESTOS IS ONLY DANGEROUS WHEN IT IS AGITATED IN THE GROUND. THEN IT CAN GET INTO THE AIR AND INHALING IT CAN LEAD TO A NUMBER OF RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS INCLUDING AN INCREASED RISK OF YOUNG, LUNG CANCER AND IT IS FOLLOWING RECOGNITIONS FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN Service TO ENSURE IT IS SAFE BEFORE AND DURING AND AFTER IMPROVEMENT. NEIGHBORS WANT TO KNOW HOW THEY ARE DOING IT. I DON’T KNOW HOW YOU WOULD GET RID OF IT TOTALLY. IT HAS TO BE DUG UP AND TRUCKED OUT HERE. I Demand YOU TO Make A LOOK AT THE PARK AND SURROUNDING AREA. YOU Be understood that IT’S ON THE SHORES OF LAKE NORMAN AND YOU SEE ALL THE HOMES SURROUNDING THE AREA. THE EPA GAVE SOME OF THE FAMILIES HERE A FREE OPTION TO TEST SOIL FOR ASBESTOS, BUT I TOLD OTHER FAMILIES ARE SO CONCERNED THEY MAY PAY OUT OF POCKET TO CHECK THEIRS. UNFORTUNATELY, WE HAVE Included A NUMBER OF CASES LATELY WHERE DANGEROUS Cloth HAVE BEEN FOUND IN THE GROUND WHERE THE KIDS PLAY AND GO TO SCHOOL.JUST LAST MONTH, SOME FAMILIES IN DAVIDSON WERE WARNED NOT TO DIG ON THE PROPERTY BECAUSE ASBESTOS WAS USED AS BUILDER UNDER MANY HOMES IN THE AREA. THE EPA HAS REMOVED SOME OF IT, BUT THE COULDN’T GET ALL OF IT. SOME NEIGHBORS IN IREDELL COUNTY ALSO CONCERNED THAT COAL ASH MAY HAVE BEEN USED AS BILLING UNDER THEIR HOMES. MOST OF THOSE LOCATIONS ARE LISTED ON THE STATE WEBSITE FOR BUT JUST LAST MONTH, WE LEARNED THERE COULD BE OTHERS IN NEIGHBORHOODS THAT THE STATE DOES NOT KNOW ABOUT AND HASN’T POSTED ABOUT ..
