Community, Army investigate contamination at Forest Glen Annex by Kara Rose and Sylvia Carignan Gaithersburg Gazette (MD) October 17, 2012Carroll McKown, a 27-year Navy veteran, said what her Silver Spring neighbors don’t know about the Forest Glen Annex might hurt them.
Waste dating back to the 1940s by the Walter Reed Army Medical Center could be on the military installation's site - and the community is hoping to find out just what is buried there. Six sites on the annex have been identified as areas for review, including three landfills, a car wash area, the site of an oil leak and a streambed contaminated with suspected carcinogens.
McKown has owned her Silver Spring home since 1978. She said most of her neighbors don't know the history of the annex. Health concerns, stemming from the landfills, worry her the most.
"This has got to be corrected so we do not have a health problem and contamination of the area," McKown said. "Of course, this has to be done by people who know the engineering aspects of this and how to do it well."
