Subject: [CPEO-MEF] MUNITIONS: Searching the Ft. Monroe (VA) moat
Fort Monroe moat yields scattered debris

HAMPTON - An up-close look at one of Virginia's most unique features - an honest-to-God moat that circles a fort - has yet to unearth anything weird or exciting.

No carcass of an undiscovered sea creature. No corpses of long-lost gangsters.

But for those undertaking the very serious work of cleaning up Fort Monroe, lack of excitement is good news.

This week, workers in chest-deep water are scouring the bottom of the moat where pieces of metal rest under the muck. The areas were identified last year during a sweep with acoustical and magnetic-sensor equipment, said Robert Reali, the BRAC environmental coordinator in the post's Directorate of Public Works.
