Historical asbestos exposure monitoring conducted during numerous cement asbestos water pipe repair operations show that when specific work practices are used, workers are not exposed to measurable amounts of airborne asbestos. This letter of agreement relies on specific work practices and historical monitoring, in conjunction with training, to relieve water district employers of having to perform air monitoring when repairing cement asbestos water pipes. However, other Class III asbestos provisions still apply.
