Asbestos at Lago Vista High School

Empire Ranch residents are a little alarmed at the discovery of naturally-occurring asbestos at the site of the new Lago Vista High School, scheduled to open in Fall 2006. Serpentine rock, a common creator of natural asbestos, was found on the land, and now a multi-million dollar cleanup effort is planned, possibly delaying the school to 2007. Details: Sac Bee
