Subject: [CPEO-MEF] FUDS: SunRiver at Camp Abbot (OR)
Sunriver homeowners sue U.S. government, others over asbestos

Property owners at Central Oregon's popular Sunriver Resort have filed a $3.2 million lawsuit against the federal government and other previous owners of the military camp that preceded the resort, citing asbestos contamination.

In a complaint filed late last month in federal court, the Sunriver Owners Association says it discovered the cancer-causing material in a 6-acre site where demolished Camp Abbot buildings were buried.

The federal government purchased the future resort site in 1942 for use as a U.S. Army combat engineer training camp. Camp Abbot consisted of nearly 100 buildings, "some or all of which" featured cement asbestos board siding, as well as insulation, floor tiles, ceilings and walls containing asbestos, Sunriver's suit alleges.
