"Report: Millions of Pounds of Chemicals Released in Virginia"

"Tons of toxic materials are being released by Fredericksburg-area industries, companies and military installations, according to a state report.

The Toxics Release Inventory, put out last week by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality, includes releases in air, water and on land.

The report for 2012—the latest information available—includes information on more than a dozen area sites. In some cases, those materials were managed on in-house, or sent elsewhere for recycling, treatment or disposal."
