Due to the weather, the site was closed on Monday, March 3. Crews spent the rest of the week removing and stockpiling soils from the remaining excavation area. Additionally, they continued to fill roll off containers with soil and collected composite samples for further analysis.
No American University Experiment Station-related debris was found this week. There were no detections of chemical agents or industrial compounds.
There will be a RAB meeting Tuesday, March 11 at 7 p.m., in the 'Undercroft' meeting room at St. David's Episcopal Church, 5150 Macomb Street NW, Washington, D.C. These meetings are open to the public.
Safety continues to be our number one priority at the site. Throughout every phase of the project, all necessary precautions are taken to ensure the safety of the site workers, the residents of the community, and those driving by. We will continue to keep you updated.
