Boolaroo Profile

Boolaroo, a suburb of Lake Macquarie in New South Wales, Australia, has a significant history of asbestos usage in its buildings and infrastructure. One of the most notable sites is the former Pasminco smelter, a lead and zinc smelter that operated for over a century and was known to have used asbestos in its construction. The smelter was a significant part of Boolaroo’s industrial history, and its closure in 2003 marked the end of an era. Asbestos was also commonly used in the construction of homes and public buildings in Boolaroo, particularly during the mid-20th century. The suburb is characterized by a mix of architectural styles, with many older homes built in the Federation and California Bungalow styles, which often incorporated asbestos in roofing, insulation, and wall materials.

Today, the presence of asbestos in Boolaroo poses significant challenges and health risks. The former Pasminco smelter site, now known as the Cockle Creek Precinct, has been the focus of extensive remediation efforts to remove asbestos and other contaminants. Schools, government buildings, and other public facilities in Boolaroo have also had to manage asbestos-related issues. The Lake Macquarie City Council has implemented a comprehensive asbestos management plan, which includes regular inspections, removal of asbestos-containing materials, and public education about the risks of asbestos. Despite these efforts, there have been reports of health issues related to asbestos exposure in Boolaroo. In 2015, a study by the University of Newcastle found a higher incidence of mesothelioma, a cancer caused by asbestos exposure, in the Lake Macquarie region compared to the rest of New South Wales. This has underscored the importance of ongoing efforts to address the legacy of asbestos in Boolaroo.
