Power Plants in New Hampshire Known for Asbestos Exposure
Power plants have used asbestos for its heat and fire resistance properties. Until the 1970’s, asbestos insulation was used in power plant equipment such as turbines, boilers, tanks, pumps, steam pipes, valves and other equipment throughout the power plant. As a result, workers in the utility industry were at high risk of exposure to asbestos-containing products. Power plants in New Hampshire known for asbestos exposure include:
- Merrimack Power Plant in Bow,
- Concord Power Plant,
- Littleton Hydro-Electric Dam Project,
- Schiller Power Station and Seabrook Nuclear Power Station in Portsmouth and
- Schiller Power Station in Newington.

Another industry with a history of asbestos usage is the ship building industry. Marine construction and repair workers and navy veterans often worked around or with asbestos. Some of the asbestos containing materials often found on the jobsite were boilers, insulation, turbines, pumps, gaskets and cement to name a few.

Older Buildings and Residential Exposure to Asbestos in New Hampshire
Individuals in New Hampshire are primarily exposed to asbestos at their workplace or at home while working with asbestos containing material (ACM). ACMs, for example, were used in the construction industry and a lot of construction materials in buildings and homes. ACM for construction material included wall board, insulation, ceiling and floor tiles to name a few. The problem arises during the renovation of schools, public facilities, older building and homes and the proper safety precautions are not in place to remove the ACMs.

The asbestos at the jobsite or contained in materials is most dangerous when it is disturbed or damaged because it can become airborne and when inhaled can attach to the mesothelial lining of the lung. This exposure can result in mesothelioma, the deadly form of cancer that can affect the lining of the lungs or abdomen or the heart.
