Subject: [CPEO-MEF] HEALTH: Hunters Points Shipyard (CA) asbestos
Hunters Point groups say Lennar, government hid asbestos risks

On Monday, representatives from community groups said government agencies colluded inappropriately with Lennar Corp. when investigating a cloud of asbestos kicked up in 2006 by contractors working on the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard.

In a tearful news conference, residents revealed what they believe are the most damning of about 2,000 emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency official said the allegations are under investigation, but otherwise declined to comment.

Neighborhood advocates said correspondence between the EPA, the San Francisco Department of Public Health and Lennar shows a conspiracy to downplay health risks of the asbestos cloud they say caused nosebleeds, rashes and headaches for area residents.
