Asbestos Exposure in Huntington Beach, CA

Huntington Beach is located in southern California and has a population of nearly 190,000, making it the largest beach city in Orange County. Nicknamed the "Surfing Capital of the World", Huntington Beach is notable for its long 8.5-mile beach, mild climate, and consistent quality of surf. Tourism and technology are two of the leading industries in Huntington Beach today. Huntington Beach boasts a diversified economy, home to more than 650 industrial businesses including Boeing (formerly McDonnell-Douglas), Quicksilver, Cambro Manufacturing, and C & D Aerospace.

Incorporated in 1909, the city of Huntington Beach experienced a significant period of growth with the oil boom in 1920. This was the largest California oil deposit known at the time. In less than one month Huntington Beach grew from 1,500 to 5,000 people. After a final oil strike in 1953, the fire department began clearing out oil derricks within the city and along the coast to make room for the population explosion. Beginning in the late 1950s and continuing into the 1970s, residents by the thousands moved into the burgeoning city. Huntington Beach became the fastest growing city in the continental United States as housing tract after housing tract was built. In the late 1970s and 1980s, oil production rigs were concealed to improve the beach image. Although the oil is mostly depleted today, extraction continues at a slow rate, and still provides substantial local income.

Asbestos exposure in the workplace has been an enduring issue in Huntington Beach, particularly in oil refineries and manufacturing facilities, where use of asbestos-containing products was common from the early through late 1900s.
