    January 2006 Public Health Consultation, Oak Ridge High School, Final [PDF, 425KB]
    This final public health consultation released by ATSDR concludes that current exposures to naturally occurring amphibole asbestos from campus soil at Oak Ridge High School have been minimized by the mitigations conducted by the El Dorado Union High School District (EDUHSD) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. However, the potential exists for current or future exposures from unmitigated areas on campus or from other off-campus sources. The final public health consultation includes public comments from the May 6, 2005 through June 30, 2005 public comment period and ATSDR’s responses.
