Developer of Chesapeake Golf Course Made with Fly Ash Speaks Out

The developer of a golf course made with coal ash speaks to TV cameras for the first time about the lawsuit against his company - against the advice of his lawyer. "My reaction to the lawsuit is that it contains more fiction that a Harry Potter novel." Neil Wallace is talking about the $2 billion dollar lawsuit claiming coal ash used to create the Battlefield Golf Course in Chesapeake is contaminating ground water with toxic metals.

Wallace was the developer of the course and his company is one of the defendants in the suit. "You read the complaint you think we sit around coming up with ways to hurt people - that obviously was not the intent." He says the battlefield golf club was built to create a green space - a benefit for the community. "These projects have been done for 30 - 40 years in the U.S. and they are perfectly safe as long as the regulations are followed."
