4825 Glenbrook Road Shelter-in-Place: The Shelter-in-Place program has been paused for the duration of the tent relocation efforts, which will take place from the end of October 2015 to January 2016, just as it was during the previous tent move last fall. High probability operations are expected to resume in February 2016. We will continue to provide updates on our schedule and provide adequate advance notice of the start of the next phase of high probability operations. Approximately 30 days prior to the start of the next phase, we will begin testing the Shelter-in-Place system and provide any necessary re-training for the residents within the Shelter-in-Place zone. We will notify everyone prior to reinstating the program.
Remedial Investigation Report
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District has released the Final Remedial Investigation report for the Spring Valley Formerly Used Defense Site (FUDS) in accordance with the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, or CERLCA. The report, along with many supporting documents, can be found on the Remedial Investigation page, found by clicking here.
The Remedial Investigation report details 22 years worth of investigations and work, such as removals of arsenic contaminated soil and munitions related items that have taken place at the Spring Valley FUDS. The report also outlines the potential unacceptable risks and hazards thought to remain within the Spring Valley FUDS. Additionally, the report provides the objectives that the Corps of Engineers will use during its analysis of potential clean-up actions in the Feasibility Study document. The Feasibility Study will outline how the Corps of Engineers plans to address any potential unacceptable risks and hazards.
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.
