Some folks who live around the Radford Arsenal had plenty of environmental questions at a public hearing on Tuesday night.
The meeting started at 6 p.m. and it wasn't long before folks were asking how safe is the air, soil and water around the Radford Arsenal.
The Army, The Department of Environmental Quality and BAE Systems, the contractor that manages the arsenal, all were taking questions during this public hearing.
BAE has said it wants permission from the feds to burn more chromium on its open-burning site.
The EPA, Environmental Protection Agency, has proposed classifying one form of chromium as a cancer causing agent.
Tuesday night's public meeting was supposed to be only about placing ground water wells to monitor the open-burning site.
But residents wanted answers to a slew of other questions.
They may not have liked all the answers, but they got the attention they needed.
BAE has said it will wait until 2015, before formally applying for an expanded permit to burn more of what it says are safe and minute levels of chromium on site.
