Manor View dump site update
By Denise Tegtmeyer and Paul Fluck
To date, approximately 19,000 tons of buried trash have been safely removed and transported off post to an approved landfill.
When the trash removal is complete, the site will be backfilled, leveled and seeded with grass, leaving an open flat field.
The project schedule has been extended into mid-July, primarily due to inclement weather -- a common problem with outdoor construction projects.
For more information, call the Environmental Office at 301-677-9854.
* February to March: Site preparation (complete)
* March to early July: Trash excavation, off-post disposal and backfilling (in progress)
* July: Site restoration (two weeks)
Throughout the work: air monitoring, methane monitoring, traffic control, dust control, odor control, noise control and public outreach activities
