MassDEP Assesses $110,480 in Penalties for Five Asbestos Violation Cases in Western Massachusetts

The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) has levied $110,480 in penalties against several individuals and companies in western Massachusetts for violating the Commonwealth's air quality regulations pertaining to asbestos.

The violations resulting in penalties occurred in Springfield, Holyoke, Ludlow, and Pittsfield.

"Exposure to asbestos fibers poses a significant public health risk," said Michael Gorski, director of MassDEP's Western Regional Office in Springfield. "Asbestos fibers that are contained or encapsulated and not subject to airborne release do not pose a health hazard; no laws or regulations require the removal of intact encapsulated asbestos-containing materials (ACM).

“However, it is essential that those who may disturb ACM, such as those undertaking renovations, adhere to the requirements regarding the proper management of asbestos."
