Asbestos cleanup continues


BATON ROUGE, LA — Asbestos-infested mud and water in the steam tunnels under the Louisiana State University (LSU) campus has pushed Facility Services’ clean-up project past the expected length of three weeks, according to The Daily Reveille.

The project, which began in January, was intended to replace insulation infested with asbestos particles in order to make tunnels more accessible for repairs, the article stated.

According to the article, during this process, it was discovered that asbestos particles drifted downward, contaminating the muddy water below.

Because of that contamination, Facility Services decided to do a full cleaning of the steam tunnels, going beyond simply replacing the insulation, the article noted.
