Asbestos Projects

Do you have questions about asbestos in town?

It's an important topic and we want to make sure everyone stays in-the-know, especially those who live close to the Metrolina Warehouse site. The Town of Davidson will serve as the local connector to resources, since we are not the experts in this arena. 

The best, most up-to-date information about the project may be found at the NC. Department of Environmental Quality's website here.

Please visit the new story map with full details on the Davidson Community Asbestos Site here.
