Abstract
The Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory has monitored block-wide building demolition and debris disposal activities at Santa Cruz and Watsonsville, California following the earthquake, an implosion demolition of a 26-story building in Cincinnati, Ohio, and the demolition of two school buildings in Fairbanks, Alaska to evaluate if the demolition activities and their associated dust control practices were able to prevent downwind elevations of asbestos concentrations. The analyses of the air samples were performed using the Transmission Electron Microscope for ambient air levels. Personnel monitoring at the Santa Cruz landfill and the Fairbanks landfill during disposal activities were analyzed by both TEM and phase contrast microscopy. The paper documents the conditions of the buildings, demolition practices, dust control practices, and up and downwind asbestos concentrations during demolition.
