Asbestos Exposure, Mesothelioma Doctors and Lawyers in Anacortes, Washington

Asbestos Exposure in Anacortes, WA

Anacortes is a city located 78 miles north of Seattle, Washington on Fidalgo Island. Surrounded by the Puget Sound to the north and the San Juan Islands on three sides, Anacortes gets 21 inches of rain annually which is half as much as neighboring Seattle. Anacortes built its first post office in 1879 and twelve years later, in 1891, the town became an official incorporated city.

Following the arrival of the transcontinental railroad, Anacortes became a thriving lumber and fishing community. These industries drove the local economy until the 1950s when oil companies began constructing refineries in town. Some of the earliest facilities included Shell Oil Refinery, Equilon, and Texaco Oil Refinery Washington. Many refineries are still in operation today but have changed corporate hands; originally a Texaco facility, Puget Sound Refining Company is one of Anacortes’ largest area employers. Puget Sound Refinery employs 375 people and has about 100 contract workers on site. The processed crude oil from the facility generates 143,000 barrels per day and is used to manufacture gasoline and jet fuel. In addition to the considerable refining industry, yacht construction and shipbuilding, tourism, and residential services for Whidbey Island Naval Air Station add to the present-day economic base of Anacortes.

The longstanding industrial history of Anacortes places the city in a high risk category for asbestos exposure. Individuals who worked with or around asbestos containing materials may be at risk to developing mesothelioma cancer. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma in Anacortes, you may benefit from contacting Dr. Eric Vallieres.
