Around the Division

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Project Manager Alex Zahl looks on as crews use a Manned Portable Vector to classify buried metallic anomalies during geophysical surveying efforts along Dalecarlia Parkway in the Spring Valley Formerly Used Defense Site September 6, 2018. The work is part of the Site-Wide Remedial Action approved for the FUDS. The surveying is part of an effort to identify metallic anomalies below the surface that could be munitions left in the ground as a result of military activity in the area during World War I. The MPV equipment helps determine whether buried metallic anomalies are munitions items that may potentially be hazardous or cultural debris that do not need to be removed.
