Iowa Fines Developing Company for Asbestos

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

The state of Iowa recently fined a developer in Des Moines after asbestos was found in one of the floors of the company’s buildings.

After being tipped off by an anonymous source, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources discovered asbestos in and around the building.

State Officials Concerned

The DNR says they are concerned about condominium shoppers that were potentially exposed to asbestos while in the building.

“This gave us great concern,” says Kelli Book, lawyer for the DNR. “The exposure to the public over 14 months could have been considerable.

Asbestos was reportedly found in various parts of the building, including the model home.

“Our larger concern is that we found dry asbestos around the entire building. The inspector found asbestos debris and dust right in the area of the model condo unit,” explained Book.

Not the First Time

According to reports, this is not the first time that Knapp has found themselves in legal trouble involving asbestos.

In 2000 the company was accused of failing to inspect another building.
