Hi
I am new here and would like some information regarding the following locations to live in. I am escaping the East Coast for California. I've visited several areas of California but not Folsom or El Dorado or the surrounding areas. I've read about the risks of natural asbestos in those areas, not too concerned, I grew up sucking in Boston pollution all of my life.
I have questions regarding the living in these areas. Any feed back would be appreciated.


Thank you

Default El Dorado Hills CA

Thank you


I read that in 2009 there was an Asbestos scare in El Dorado hills (due to serpentine rock). Was this situation blown out of proportion? I'm looking for a nice quiet relatively safe area. I've lived in the city all of my life and can't stand it.

Sorry so late getting back to you on this. We personally investigated the asbestos issue when we moved here. Based on the research we found, we did not feel it was an issue for us.

Everyone has to make their own decisions. I don’t know if I can dig up the specific report again, but what I read at the time is that the study showed any increased chance of cancer from Asbestos here is less than an increased chance of cancer from higher pollution levels closer to town.


You can ask 10 people and you will get 10 different answers. That’s just my take.
