The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' plan to detonate some World War I-era chemical weapons in the Spring Valley neighborhood remained Wednesday in place as the city dashed to have a public-safety plan ready to go.

The detonation remains scheduled for Thursday, as has been the case for weeks. However, residents pushed their better-safe-than-sorry approach to lawmakers, and city officials agreed to come up with a safety plan though it was still being devised late Wednesday afternoon.

The corps plans to denote 24 chemical munitions found on federal property in Spring Valley — home to the embassies of Qatar and South Korea, Sibley Memorial Hospital, the Dalecarlia Water Treatment Plant and pumping station, Wesley Theological Seminary and American University.
