 Assessment of Asbestos Fiber Release and Exposure During Mechanical Removal of Coal Tar Wrapped Natural Gas Pipelines (June 5, 2003) 

On June 5, 2003 Peter S.J. Lees, Ph.D., CIH submitted the report titled Assessment of Asbestos Fiber Release & Exposure During Mechanical Removal of Coal Tar Wrapped Natural Gas Pipelines to the Niagara Mohawk Corporation.  Air sampling was conducted on February 10 - 11, 2003 during the mechanical removal of non-friable asbestos containing coal tar wrap from underground natural gas pipelines.  The air sampling was completed to estimate: 1) worker exposure to asbestos fibers, and 2) the magnitude of asbestos fiber release to the environment.  This report includes a detailed summary of the pertinent sampling parameters, analytical results, and calculation of airborne fiber concentrations.
