Chesapeake council to consider allowing developer to omit contaminants from disclosure

CHESAPEAKE The City Council could decide Tuesday to allow a developer not to share with new residents a list of contaminants – including elevated levels of arsenic, lead and petroleum hydrocarbons – found in the area’s shallow groundwater.

UPDATE:  At its meeting on March 15, 2016, the Chesapeake City Council unanimously denied the request for change in proffered contaminant language.
