Virginia Beach officials and a contractor are looking for the cause of a leak at a $25 million expansion of the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center.
The city and W.M. Jordan Co. have hired a forensic engineering firm to track down the leak. W.M. Jordan President John Lawson says water is seeping out of the aquarium's concrete shell. He says the leak is minor.
Aquarium executive director Lynn B. Clements says the leak isn't a big issue. She says another leak was fixed earlier.
The Restless Planet expansion opened last.
