Multiple changes to the Spokane Clean Air's asbestos regulations took effect September 2, 2014. To enhance communication about asbestos requirements, Spokane Clean Air launched a monthly Asbestos Updates e-mail service. Each email message highlights information related to asbestos requirements in Spokane County.
