Gov. Watchdog: EPA failed to properly monitor asbestos in schools

The government watchdog overseeing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found that the agency failed in its duties to properly monitor asbestos levels at schools.

Between fiscal years 2011 and 2015, the EPA only conducted 13 percent of the school inspections it was responsible for statewide, an EPA Office of Inspector General (IG) report released Monday found.

The EPA's management of its asbestos monitoring duties paled in comparison to states that ran their own programs, the study also found. States with jurisdiction over their own inspections performed 87 percent of the inspections they were tasked with.

The EPA also significantly reduced — and in some cases eliminated — the resources available for asbestos monitoring, the report found.
