The AU-owned house at 4825 Glenbrook Rd. might be torn down to make way for a broader investigation of the chemical munitions burial pit at the property, according to David Taylor, AU President Neil Kerwin's chief of staff.

The property sits adjacent to the president's residence at 4835 Glenbrook Road.


AU also announced that it has been conducting periodic air monitoring at the president's residence.

Many of the chemicals in the soil at Pit 3 react with the air to give off gas and toxic fumes, according to the Army Corps of Engineers and the Environmental Protection Agency.
