Press Release Office of Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton April 22, 2015Norton Presses U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to Expedite Spring Valley Chemical Cleanup
WASHINGTON, D.C.—After almost 25 years of work, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) is trying to expedite federal efforts to excavate and restore the Spring Valley Formerly Used Defense Site, located in Spring Valley, the residential neighborhood near American University. At a Water Resources and Environment Subcommittee hearing, Norton, a senior member of the subcommittee, asked Lieutenant General Thomas Bostick, Chief of Engineers, United States Army Corps of Engineers, if there was any way to speed the project’s timeline. Norton requested a response from the Corps within 30 days.
The Congresswoman has successfully ensured that funding for the site cleanup has flowed without interruption, even during the recession and sequester. Although the excavation for the Glenbrook Road site, one of the most extensive, is scheduled to be completed in 2017, there may be further cleanup affecting up to 100 homes in the neighborhood even then.
