North Carolina Asbestos Exposure Sites

Asbestos in North Carolina

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

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

  • North Carolina factories
  • Powerplants in North Carolina
  • Refineries or Chemical Plants in North Carolina

Below is a list of 234 known sites of asbestos exposure in North Carolina. Asbestos exposure is known to have occurred in at least 103 North Carolina cities, though the number is likely even higher.

The North Carolina city with the most asbestos exposure sites was Charlotte, NC, with 27 known sites contaminated by asbestos.
