Many may have read the NW Current article in the January 21 issue, summarizing information provided on the Remedial Investigation report at the January Restoration Advisory Board meeting. We would like to clarify that the areas noted in the article are general locations that underwent focused evaluations in the report, not the recommendations made by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for further investigation. The Site-Wide Remedial Investigation report recommendations will be provided at the March 10 Restoration Advisory Board meeting and will be further discussed and presented at a community meeting during the 45-day public comment period this spring. Please note that the March 10 Restoration Advisory Board meeting will be held at 7 pm at the Metropolitan Memorial United Methodist Church, 3401 Nebraska Avenue Northwest, Washington, DC 20016.
More information on the Remedial Investigation report can be found in the fact sheet here. The Corps of Engineers remains committed to implementing a measured and comprehensive path forward at the Spring Valley Formerly Used Defense Site — the objective being a thorough and complete cleanup, with the safety of the surrounding neighborhood, university community, and site workers as the number one priority.
