News Release No. 13-015 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Baltimore District June 17, 2013 Corps of Engineers delays intrusive work at 4825 Glenbrook RoadBaltimore, Md. - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District, has decided to modify the work schedule for high probability operations at 4825 Glenbrook Road NW in Washington, D.C., a part of the Spring Valley Formerly Used Defense Sites project. The impending furlough of government employees requires the implementation of a variety of reductions in work hours. The furlough will restrict the team to four 8-hour work days per week and overtime compensation will not be allowed, which restricts available work hours from our current schedule of 60 hours per week down to 32 hours per week.
Safety for our workers and the community is our number one priority. The Corps of Engineers will not compromise safety; therefore even the slightest potential that response capabilities might be degraded under furlough conditions led to the decision to delay high probability intrusive activities at the site.
The Corps of Engineers is only delaying the start of high probability intrusive activities at the site. Non-intrusive work at the site will continue throughout the furlough. The Corps of Engineers will continue to install all of the remaining engineering controls, actively maintain the site, continue to provide on-site security, and perform all required training in preparation for high probability intrusive activities. This will allow high probability operations to begin as soon as the furlough ends.
