A great deal of dust was generated when asbestos-containing cement pipes needed to be cut or sanded for fit. The workers risked breathing in a closed-off environment contaminated with millions of microscopic asbestos particles.

Asbestos cement pipes were made of Portland cement mixed with asbestos fibers in order to strengthen the final product. This type of cement was also known as transite, due to the addition of asbestos into its composition.

As asbestos cement pipes were used throughout the country in the municipal water systems, the main danger concerning them was drinking the asbestos-fiber infested water. Another risk involving asbestos exposure happened in the factories where the asbestos cement pipes were made. You could have been exposed if:

  • You worked as a municipal sewer and water worker
  • You helped in manufacturing asbestos cement pipes
