Freshwater Profile

The suburb of Freshwater, known for its charming federation-style homes and iconic landmarks, has a significant history of asbestos usage. Asbestos was commonly used in the construction of many buildings and infrastructure within Freshwater during the mid-20th century, due to its heat-resistant properties and affordability. Notable structures such as the Freshwater Surf Lifesaving Club, the Harbord Literary Institute, and even the local public school were built using asbestos-containing materials. The use of asbestos was prevalent in the construction of homes in the area, with many of the older federation-style homes, characterized by their red brick exteriors and terracotta tiled roofs, containing asbestos in their walls, ceilings, and insulation. The timeline of asbestos use in these structures spans from the early 1900s until the mid-1980s, when the health risks associated with asbestos became widely recognized, leading to a ban on its use in construction.

Currently, Freshwater faces several challenges and health implications due to its historical use of asbestos. The presence of asbestos in key locations such as Freshwater Public School, government buildings, and historical sites poses a significant health risk to residents and visitors. Asbestos fibers, when disturbed, can become airborne and, if inhaled, can lead to serious health conditions such as asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma. Local authorities have taken steps to manage these risks, including the implementation of asbestos removal programs in prominent locations. For instance, the Freshwater Surf Lifesaving Club underwent a significant renovation in 2014, which included the safe removal of asbestos. Similarly, the Harbord Literary Institute has been subject to regular inspections and asbestos management plans. Despite these efforts, there have been several reports of health incidents linked to asbestos exposure in Freshwater, highlighting the ongoing need for vigilance and effective management of this issue.
