EPA, Airport Officials Agree on Asbestos Removal

By Matt Sepic, KWMU

St. Louis – Demolition workers clearing the way for Lambert Airport's new runway have agreed to stop using a controversial asbestos removal process.

But the EPA said Friday all wet method demolition will stop while officials review the process.
