The Environmental Protection Agency’s Science Advisory Board (SAB) is expected comment Tuesday on the Draft Assessment on toxicity levels of asbestos levels in Libby.

The preliminary report, entitled the “Toxicology Review of Libby Amphibole Asbestos” has been released and the SAB will discuss it during a tele-conference from 2 to 5 p.m. MDT.

The public is invited to listen in but will not be able to comment, said Angela Nugent, the designated federal officer for the Chartered SAB.

“This is a complicated process,” Nugent said.

To hear the teleconference, email Nugent at who will reply with teleconference information.
