California Asbestos Exposure Sites

Asbestos in California

For decades, California buildings and products have used asbestos. Because of this, many California residents have been exposed to asbestos and are at risk for contracting mesothelioma cancer.

The symptoms of mesothelioma often take decades to appear, so California workers are at risk even if they were exposed to asbestos decades ago. Examples of California asbestos exposure sites include:

  • California factories
  • Powerplants in California
  • Refineries or Chemical Plants in California

Below is a list of 418 known sites of asbestos exposure in California. Asbestos exposure is known to have occurred in at least 140 California cities, though the number is likely even higher.

The California city with the most asbestos exposure sites was Los Angeles, CA, with 49 known sites contaminated by asbestos.
