Rhode Island beachgoers will have to find another place to put on their trunks if they planned to change in the North Pavilion bathhouse in Narragansett because loose asbestos needs to be sealed at the facility.
Asbestos in Roofing Panels

The asbestos-containing materials are on the building’s exterior roof panels, according to the Providence Journal. The plan for the bathhouse is to power wash the roof’s edges and other surfaces and then paint them with epoxy, which will hopefully prevent the asbestos from becoming airborne.

The work will begin on July 12 and the town will be trying to get the job done as quickly as possible.

“The work should be done in three to four days with good weather,” Town Manager Grady Miller told the news source. “The town has an obligation to address the situation before it becomes a problem or potential health risk.”

In addition, the crews will be working 15-hour days to speed up the project.
Danger of Airborne Asbestos

If asbestos becomes airborne and is then inhaled, the deadly mineral can cause a number of serious illnesses, including malignant mesothelioma and asbestosis.
