Asbestos removal timeline for West Virginia building pushed back
The removal of asbestos from the Harley O. Staggers federal building in Morgantown, West Virginia, will reportedly take more time than initially expected, according to local television station WBOY.

Robert Doyle, facility manager, said recently that the project was halfway done, but was expected to take longer than August 9, which was the original deadline.

Other aspects of the project, including removing graffiti from sides of the building that are visible to the public, are also underway, the news source reports. The graffiti on the back of the building will be taken care of once the asbestos is removed.

Doyle noted that he plans to meet with Reclaim, which is completing the asbestos removal, as well as the construction consultant next week to determine where it stands.

Taking precaution when it comes to asbestos removal is key, as exposure to the carcinogenic substance can lead to the development of asbestosis, lung cancer and malignant mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that attacks the tissues surrounding a majority of the body's internal organs.
