Asbestos Exposure in North Carolina

PowerPlantNorth Carolina has a number of asbestos risks due to the military bases, industrial worksites, and several vermiculite plants. Veterans who were based at Fort Bragg, Marine Corps Base Camp Kejuene, and Seymour Johnson Air Force Base may have been at risk due to high levels of asbestosis in the facilities.

Power plant workers in North Carolina may also have a high risk of exposure. Asbestos was often found in the insulation materials used to wrap electrical conduits, and was in the plaster, drywall, and the cement used to construct the power plant buildings.
