Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Ft. Belvoir (VA) radioactive materials vault
Radioactive material storage vault slated for demolition

A vault on post that was once used to store radioactive materials is
slated for demolition next month.

An environmental assessment found that the demolition of the vault will
have no major human health or environmental effects.

The vault is assigned building No. 7304 and is located inside the gated
Research and Development Engineering Compound on south post.

In 2003, the Army requested that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission
terminate its license to use the building as a radioactive materials
storage vault.

As a result, the Army prepared a decommissioning plan to meet the NRC
closure standards and emptied the vault, which contained several bottles
filled with chemical agents.
