Asbestos Exposure in Alexandria, VA

Located on the Potomac River six miles from downtown Washington D.C., Alexandria is an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia and has a population of approximately 140,000. The first settlement was established in 1695 and was then called the British Colony of Virginia. By 1870, Alexandria was officially incorporated as an independent city.

Like much of northern Virginia, Alexandria was shaped by the Civil War and its proximity to the nation’s capital. Beginning in the early 20th century, heavy industry became a mainstay of the community. During World War I, a U.S. Naval Torpedo Station was constructed on the Potomac River and began producing Mark III torpedoes. The Navy remained in Alexandria and was later responsible for manufacturing Mark XIV torpedoes during World War II. Alexandria’s natural water supply made the area an ideal location for power and utility companies such as Alexandria Light and Power Company, Braddock Light & Power Company, and Potomac Electric & Power Company. The heavy industrial area along the Potomac River has since been renovated and redeveloped into a lively waterfront area with a marina, shops, public parks, walkways, restaurants, residences, and offices. The largest private employers in Alexandria are Inova Alexandria Hospital, ABM Industries, and Institute for Defense Analyses. Top public employers are the United States Patent and Trademark Office and the United States Department of Defense.
