Army Will Reveal List of Recovered Munitions Next Month

Col. David Anderson, Army Corps' Baltimore District

In fulfillment of promises made at a June 10 Congressional oversight hearing, "the Army has lifted a security order concealing a list of World War I-era munitions uncovered in Washington's Spring Valley neighborhood. At a community meeting Tuesday, officials with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said the list of recovered munitions would be made public next month. D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton brought officials to update residents on the cleanup of chemical munitions from an American University experiment station during World War I. Col. David Anderson, commander of the Army Corps' Baltimore district, says they are still concerned about security but want to be more transparent."
