A group of Manchester residents exposed to elevated levels of lead dust has reached a settlement with property developer Brady Sullivan.

Several dozen residents of the Mill West apartment complex in Manchester sued Brady Sullivan, contending that the company’s construction project in 2015 in lower levels of the mill building kicked up dangerous levels of lead-dust into luxury apartments on higher floors.

They also say Brady Sullivan, after making complaints about the lead exposure, would not let them out of their leases.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed. Lawyers for both Brady Sullivan and the tenants did not immediately respond to requests for comment. 

Brady Sullivan blames a subcontractor, Environmental Compliance Specialists, for the lead dust issue, and has filed its own lawsuit against that firm.
