Army Corps to destroy WWI munitions found in D.C. By BRETT ZONGKER Associated Press/WTOP Radio (DC) January 7, 2011WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to destroy a slew of World War I-era munitions uncovered during a cleanup of a northwest Washington neighborhood beginning next week, officials said Thursday.
The Army Corps will use a detonation chamber near Sibley Memorial Hospital in the pricey Spring Valley neighborhood to dispose of about 100 munitions found buried in the yard of a home near American University, said project manager Todd Beckwith. The process begins next week and will cost about $500,000, including months of planning. The project to destroy the munitions already found will take about two weeks.
