The 4825 Glenbrook Road property is located within the Spring Valley Formerly Used Defense Site. In the World War I era, the property was part of a larger area known as the American University Experiment Station, where the U.S. government researched and tested chemical agents, equipment and munitions. During two previous investigations (2000 - 2002 and 2007 - 2010) the Army Corps of Engineers discovered materials of concern not only on the property, but adjacent to the house's foundation. Based on previous investigations, the removal of the house provides the Corps of Engineers the access it requires for the thorough investigation of areas immediately adjacent to and under the house.
This video tour, led by project manager Brenda Barber, shows the current site and the various safety precautions and procedures in place as the excavation work continues in the upcoming weeks.
