Annapolis Bans Use Of Asphalt And Pavement Products Containing Coal Tar

"The use of coal tar sealant products is no longer allowed in Annapolis.

The City Council passed legislation Monday that prohibits the use of products for asphalt or concrete surfaces that contain coal tar or polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Primarily this affects asphalt driveway owners who use the sealants to protect those driveways from cracks and other wear.

Officials say those business and home owners can use latex-based sealants as an alternative."
