Corps will Finally Investigate Burial Pit on Fordham Road

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has won long-sought permission to investigate an "anomaly" in the backyard of a Spring Valley property, which officials believe might be the site of another World War I-era burial pit ... A 1918 aerial photo of the Fordham Road property shows a scar on the ground similar to another where workers have found munitions. 
   The Army's cleanup project manager, Dan Noble, secured the verbal agreement with the property owner there after many years of unsuccessful attempts ... Due to the long delay in finally winning the approval, the Army will have prepare a separate "task order" to solicit cleanup proposals from new contractors, which means the work probably won't begin until October at the earliest.
