Rainwater harvesting from asbestos garage roof - is it safe?
Mid Glamorgan, United Kingdom
I have recently started growing vegetables in my garden and wonder whether it would be safe to use collected rainwater from my garage roof to water them with? The garage roof (probably dating back to the 1950's) is made of asbestos sheeting. Would the soil filter any possibly harmful contaminates, or would the plants absorb them and become unsafe to eat?
