Spring Valley Residents Skeptical of Army Corps Cleanup

By MATTHEW STABLEY (NBC) WASHINGTON — House Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton assured skeptical residents Wednesday that the Spring Valley neighborhood is a safe place to live.

Residents in the wealthy Northwest neighborhood have dealt with the Army Corps of Engineers cleanup of World War I-era munitions for 16 years. Of about 1,600 homes in the neighborhood, almost 150 homeowners have had their driveways and yards excavated as part of the cleanup of remnants of weapons and traces of dangerous chemicals like mustard gas and arsenic, News4’s Tom Sherwood reported.
