From the office of Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton:
“Last week, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) wrote the Director of the National Park Service, the Commanding General of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the General Manager and CEO of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority to request a meeting to discuss the discovery of an unexploded ordinance on the Fort Totten Trail in the District of Columbia.
“I have been working to clean up the Spring Valley Formerly Used Defense Site since ordnance were first discovered there, in 1993, and this new discovery is extremely concerning,” Norton said. “I am committed to ensuring that residents across the District of Columbia are safe from such ordnance, chemical weapons and soil and groundwater contamination.”

Dear Director Sams, Lieutenant General Spellmon and General Manager Wiedefeld:
I write to request a meeting next week with the appropriate officials from the National Park Service, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority to discuss the discovery of an unexploded ordnance on the Fort Totten Trail in the District of Columbia and the scope of the investigation of the trail and surrounding areas for ordnance and soil and groundwater contamination. It appears the ordnance may be linked to the Spring Valley Formerly Used Defense Site (FUDS).
I have been working to clean up the Spring Valley FUDS since ordnance were first discovered there, in 1993. I am committed to ensuring that residents across the District of Columbia are safe from ordnance, chemical weapons and soil and groundwater contamination.
My office will contact your offices to schedule the meeting.
Eleanor Holmes Norton”
