We are starting to consider relocating to Cameron Park but have run into some concerns about asbestos. What I've read here on CD seems to suggest the problems were/are in El Dorado Hills, but this map (ftp://ftp.consrv.ca.gov/pub/dmg/pubs/ofr/ofr_2000-002_Report.pdf - broken link)would say otherwise. It looks as though the elementary school in Cameron Park is in one of the high danger zones. So what's the real deal on asbestos in Cameron Park?

Asbestos occurs naturally in many parts of the foothills, including Shingle Springs, Cameron Park, Diamond Springs, and El Dorado Hills. The greenish serpentine soil seems to be high in asbestos.

But I have never heard of a problem in Cameron Park, and I've lived near CP for 20 years. The problem in EDH was due to some loose gravel/rock at one school. We also had a problem in our neighborhood when we first moved here due to gravel that was trucked in. However, once the streets were paved, there was no longer a problem. I would think since there are pretty much no gravel roads in CP and most homes have lawns you shouldn't have a problem.

If asbestos was a problem in CP I'm sure I would have heard about it from friends who live there. CP is a very nice place to live. The schools are great and there are more places to shop. It's an easy drive to Folsom where you can find just about anything.

Asbestos has came up a couple of times in the past. Its probably worth searching the archives, you can find several maps of the asbestos risk in the region as well discussions of the areas of concern.
