The Office of Toxic Substances of the Environmental Protection Agency has sponsored a nationwide survey to determine the impact of point and non-point sources on levels of waterborne asbestos. Part 1 of the final report presented the results of analyses of water from the ten Regional cities. Part 2 of the final report presented the results of the analyses of water from natural sources and from point sources manufacturing asbestos products. Part 3 of the final report, contained herein, presents the results of the analyses of water from point sources associated with the mining and milling of potentially asbestos bearing rocks. The results of these analyses indicate that a variety of mineral ore types may have asbestos minerals associated with them and that these fibers are liberated into their effluents. In some instances, however, the final effluent has little impact on levels in the local surface water which already have high asbestos contents.
