The residence at 4825 Glenbrook Road with the aluminum-plated, containment structure on the left (south) side. According to the Army, should the structure wall be penetrated, "negative air pressure" will keep poisonous gas from escaping.

According to a report by munitions experts at Aberdeen, Maryland, a buried 75 mm shell will rust through at its thinnest part in less than 30 years.

The munitions in Pit 3 have been buried for almost 90 years.

Some believe the munitions were chemical-filled when they were buried, and approximately 90 percent have leaked their chemical contents into the soil and groundwater.

In addition, some of the munitions recovered from Pit 3 were explosively configured.

Explosives become more unstable over time, increasing the possibility of the entire stack of buried munitions exploding – sympathetic detonation.
