If You Worked in a NY Power Plant You may Have Been Exposed to Asbestos
Despite its risks as a carcinogen, asbestos was commonly used in power plants due to its insulation and heat-resistance properties. Unfortunately, until regulations restricting its use began in the 1970s, its use put countless workers at risk formesothelioma and lung cancer.

POWER PLANT WORKERS ARE AT HIGH RISK FOR ASBESTOS EXPOSURE
Thanks to its population density, New York is home to a large number of power plants, many of which were known to use materials containing asbestos. Among these facilities was what is today known as the Indian Point Energy Center in Buchanan, New York, near Peekskill.
Once maintained by Con Edison, the Indian Point nuclear power plant is today owned and operated by a subsidiary of the Entergy Corporation. The Indian Point power plant began operations in 1962, and was built during the height of asbestos use in such structures; those who helped construct or maintain power plants like Indian Point may have been exposed to the dangers of inhaling asbestos particles.
YOU MAY ONLY NOW BE EXPERIENCING SIDE-EFFECTS
Although asbestos is no longer used as it was during the Indian Point power plant’s construction, mesothelioma takes decades for its symptoms to become evident. Many workers exposed to asbestos from the 1960s through the 1980s may only recently have been diagnosed with mesothelioma.
If you or a family member worked at an Indian Point power plant and later developed mesothelioma, asbestosis, or lung cancer, call our New York asbestos attorney at (855) 971-0343.
