Virginia industries reported 917 million pounds of chemicals managed on-site, transferred off-site, or released to the environment in 2014.  This represents a 5.6% increase from the 2013 level, primarily due to increases in on-site management.  The report shows decreases in chemical releases to the air, water, or land.  From the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality
