Just off the campus of then-tiny American University, in the years leading up to the first World War, open research was conducted on chemical weapons here in DC. The site in the Spring Valley neighborhood, now known as Pit 3, is once again under wraps as yesterday a test dig found a glass flask still containing mustard agent just two feet below ground. Next steps will be a testing of the soil in the area where the glass flask was found, followed potentially by the rebuilding of the decontamination structure on the site just off Glenbrook Road.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
