Asbestos is a concern that as construction workers we are constantly aware of and keeping a look out for, but it is an even greater concern when asbestos is dumped near water sources because it can contaminate drinking water, affecting entire communities.

Recently asbestos was discovered near Leslie Harrison Dam in Queensland, after being dumped.

Although authorities explained that there was no risk to residents as water was treated to remove any asbestos fibres, the incident does raise concerns about the continued illegal dumping of this dangerous substance.
