Asbestos

  • Alabama newspaper raises anew old concerns about effect of running drinking water through AC pipe (Anniston Star, July 30)
    Commentary: While the use of asbestos-cement pipe has diminished markedly in the years since the asbestos ban and drinking water MCL were put into effect, there still exists many miles of the pipe in public drinking water systems around the nation.  The risk of asbestos fibers entering the drinking water is generally considered to be quite low, and the size of fibers are not likely to be those of concern from ingestion as opposed to inhalation.  EPA's fact sheet doesn't answer the questions raised.
