Munitions report to be released March 10 By Katherine Saltzman American University Eagle (DC) February 16, 2015The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced it will release an updated report about the progress of World War I munitions cleanup around AU and Spring Valley on March 10.
The announcement comes after two decades of contamination cleanup efforts on AU property and in the surrounding neighborhood. The Remedial Investigation Report will detail the potential environmental risks across the cleanup project site, which includes the Spring Valley neighborhood.
The report is part of a regulatory process overseen by the Environmental Protection Agency and D.C. District Department of the Environment to determine if more cleanup efforts are required, according to Andrea Takash, a spokesperson for the U.S. Army Corps segment that is overseeing the cleanup.
"Every other month, we hold Restoration Advisory Board meetings which are open to the public and get a good attendance," Takash said. "We have been talking about this remedial investigation report for over a year. What is new is there are about 100 properties that this report will identify as properties that [the U.S. Army Corps] will want to look at further."
