Demolition date set for Glenbrook house By Leigh Giangreco American University Eagle (DC) November 14, 2012The Army Corps of Engineers announced Nov. 13 that demolition on 4825 Glenbrook Rd. will begin the week of Nov 26.
Site preparation for investigative work is set after Dec. 19 when the Corps hopes demolition is completed. This work includes inspecting the site for arsenic trichloride, a dangerous chemical which affects the eyes and lungs and arsine-filled munitions, the latter of which they previously found three.
The Corps will begin work under a large tent, called a “containment structure,” in January, when they expect to find chemicals. Army Corps spokesmen at the meeting said that precautions have been put in place for the investigation. However, they have also instituted voluntary “shelter in place” procedures, which instructs people about where to take cover in case something goes wrong at the site.
