The documents from various groups and goverment agencies are long.
Key concerns are the comments that:
The site has chemicals that present an increased cancer risk.
So much dangerous chemical residues in soil that Fairfax County mandated all rain runoff must not run into the local sewer systems. This is why the plots slope downward from the street.
Some units can not have basements – too much chemical residue.
Be aware of chemicals during the contruction phase. – (what about those that live there)?
Condition for building is that the builder must disclose to potential buyers that property is over a landfill.
