Asbestos Exposure in Denver, CO

The state of Colorado's capital city, Denver is not only the most populated city in the state but, with a population of over 600,000 residents, it is the 24th most-populated metropolis in the United States. Nicknamed the "Mile-High City" due to its 5,280-foot elevation, Denver lies nestled on the western border of the High Plains and east of the Rocky Mountain Front Range. Because of its prime geographical location and surprisingly sunny weather, Denver is renowned as an extremely outdoor recreation-oriented city, with many of its inhabitants flocking to the mountains for skiing, hiking or climbing outings. For those who wish to stay in town, Denver is home to numerous nationally-acclaimed art museums, and its vibrant LoDo neighborhood is chock full of clubs, bars and restaurants. LoDo, short for "Lower Downtown" Denver, is also where Coors Field resides.

Denver was initially founded in 1858 as "Denver City," a mining outpost with an economy that catered to area miners amidst the frenzy of the Pikes Peak Gold Rush. Denver City was officially incorporated on November 7, 1861, and in 1867 shortened its name to simply Denver. With a fast-growing populace, Denver grew into the second largest city west of Omaha. Due to its regional agriculture industry importance, Denver has long been known as the "Queen City of the Plains."

By the turn of the century, Denver became the central headquarters to The Colburn Automobile Company, a trailblazing Brass-Era business. In 1895, William Ainsworth started the Denver Instrument Company, and it remains in the area to this day. The telecommunications company Qwest began life as The Mountain States Telephone & Telegraph Company in 1911. The biggest producer of automobile hoses and belts, The Gates Corporation, put down its roots in South Denver in 1919. Russell Stover Candies was headquartered in Denver between 1923 and 1969, when it moved to Kansas City. The Wright & McGill Company has been located in Denver since 1925. And Frontier Airlines set up shop at Denver's erstwhile airport, Stapleton International, in 1950. The city itself now boasts the 10th most sizeable central business district in the U.S. and is sometimes called the "Wall Street of the West".

As with most major cities, Denver has no shortage of workplaces which once contained or still contain asbestos. Jobsites such as the Cherokee Power Station, Gary Williams Energy and Zuni Power Plant are just a few of the places where asbestos exposure is known to have occurred. Asbestos exposure in the workplace has been a prevalent problem in Denver - especially in power plants, where use of asbestos-containing materials is commonplace. If you believe you were exposed to asbestos in Denver, you could be at risk of developing an asbestos cancer known as mesothelioma. Mesothelioma treatment facilities in and around Denver are listed at the bottom of this page.
