Asbestos Tragedy Libby Montana 2004
Processed vermiculite from the WR Grace Libby MT Mine contained tremolite, a form of asbestos, that was allowed to contaminate local homes and has caused hundreds of cases of asbestos-related disease in this small mountain town.  Since November, 1999, the US EPA has cleaned up the major source areas of contamination around town.  The US EPA is now cleaning up smaller sources found in a variety of places such as around homes and businesses.  EPA conducts stringent clearance sampling after cleanup and has begun some targeted sampling to measure the effectiveness of cleanup several months later.  In February 2005, seven executives and managers of W. R. Grace were indicted on ten federal criminal counts of knowingly endangering residents of Libby, and concealing information about the health effects of its mining operations.  The defendants are also accused of obstructing the government's cleanup efforts and wire fraud.
