Does Harbor Point Environmental Regulation Rest On Residents?
"Toxic Metals in Wells and Air" might be the least welcome headline ever if you were developing a site where the toxic materials were found. Readings in and around the Harbor Point development site--a chromium processing plant for 140 years until the 1980s--produced numbers of concern to the city. Some measurements were three times higher than federal standards.
As the focus of the Harbor Point project moves to the construction phase, some residents in nearby Fells Point are concerned about the safety of building on the cap that seals in contaminants from the old Allied Chemical plant.
