CONCLUSIONS & RECOMMENDATIONS
Conclusion: Not enough data are available to determine whether people who lived near the plant were exposed to hazardous levels of Libby asbestos.
In addition, not enough data are available to determine if stoner rock, an asbestos-contaminated waste material from vermiculite processing, was given to the community in the past.
ATSDR and Florida DOH plan to take the following actions:
Contact former workers for information about past waste disposal and operating practices at the facility to confirm that wastes (for instance, stoner rock) were not made available to the community.
Review new information that becomes available to determine appropriate actions to protect public health.Courtesy of The ATSDR
