San Diego Asbestos Sites

Before the 1970’s, the navy used a number of products that contained asbestos materials, and naval shipyards have long been associated with asbestos related diseases. In fact, of the Americans who have developed mesothelioma, more than 30 percent of them were exposed to asbestos during their time in the military. The San Diego Naval Station is one of the sites that has been recognized for asbestos exposure.

In addition to the San Diego Naval Station, a number of other buildings and work sites around San Diego have been linked to asbestos exposure.
