Whaddayaknow, those attorney ads for mesothelioma from Asbestos exposure took hold. Those risky abatements will be best done while that new school is closed for summer break. EPA, OSHA, Kansas NEA, and whatever alphabet soups of regulatories made the right call here.

When UMKC dozed and dumped the old dorm nasties full of the carcinogens near 50th & Oak about nine years ago, there was all out cautionary operations. Many tradesmen wore required respiration filters and hazmat suits. Huge impervious tenting over segments was in place for months of demolitions. High volume misting surrounded the site during rubble removals. Specific dump truck loads were wetted and wrapped before leaving.

It's costly to clean-up, but could cost more to settle claims for unnecessary exposures.
