Vinton Contruction settles asbestos claim for $85,000

Manitowoc-based Vinton Construction Co. Inc. has settled a lawsuit with the state for asbestos violations made during demolition of the Eggers Industries building in Manitowoc County.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced Thursday that Vinton Construction and project superintendent Douglas Wanek have agreed to pay $85,000 following a civil complaint that alleged several regulation violations. Among the six citations, Vinton Construction was accused of not inspecting the building beforehand, failed to wet asbestos before removal and did not remove all asbestos.

The asbestos that was removed was also not collected and contained properly, according to the claim.
