Army Corps votes to tear down AU-owned house on munitions site By Sylvia Carignan American University Eagle (DC) November 1, 2011The Army Corps of Engineers is announcing its next move in the decades-long process to clean up WWI munitions: razing a home near AU's main campus.
At a public meeting on Oct. 26, the Army Corps formally presented its plan to remove chemical materials deemed unsafe from the AU-owned property 4825 Glenbrook Rd., adjacent to the Kreeger building parking lot.
The proposed plan, which AU endorses, is to demolish the unoccupied house on the property, excavate much of the yard and restore the lot to residential standards.
The Army Corps has taken a "very aggressive approach to this property," said Col. David Anderson, commander of the Spring Valley project.
"This has become a notorious address in Spring Valley," Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton, D-DC, said, one that is about to be "wiped off the face of the map."
