Most public works departments that provide water service used asbestos cement pipe (ACP) to transport water underground. As road improvements are made this asbestos cement pipe is being replaced with other products. We have removed miles of asbestos cement pipe. We follow all asbestos regulations when removing this ACP. All our workers are AHERA trained and certified each year. That means they use the most up to date methods to remove the ACP. All ACP waste is disposed of at an EPA approved landfill.
Cutting ACP creates a tremendous health hazard if not done properly. The dust if not controlled by water or a mini containment will make a large dust plume of asbestos fibers. American Abatement has worked with the largest infrastructure contractors in the west.
