Education helps to remediate DC's worst contamination.
The Environmental Health Group is working to encourage a more thorough research, investigation and cleanup of the Spring Valley Formerly Used Defense Site, also known as the American University Experiment Station in Washington, DC. The Environmental Health Groupcomposed entirely of volunteersorganizes educational events, panel discussions, walking tours and exhibits, such as here at the DC Green Festival.The American University Experiment Station was the birthplace of the Chemical Warfare Service during World War I. After the war ended in 1918, many of the munitions and chemical warfare agents were simply buried on campus and in the surrounding farmland that is now the residential neighborhood of Spring Valley.The Spring Valley Formerly Used Defense Site (FUDS) has been undergoing a 16-year cleanup by the Army Corp of Engineers at a cost of more than $175 million. Deadly munitions have been uncovered, such as 75 mm rounds, Stokes mortars, and Livens projectiles. Toxic chemical warfare agents have been recovered, such as lewisite, mustard agent and arsine. Elevated levels of toxic chemicals have been detected, including arsenic, lead and mercury. Concerns have been raised regarding the thoroughness of the investigation, the lack of funding to investigate more than a dozen additional burial pits and residents' health problems.The US Department of Defense is the world's single largest polluter - larger than the top five corporate polluters combined! The Green/Sustainability Movement often overlooks the cleanup of contaminated lands. The Pentagon's annual budget for cleaning up contamination on FUDS is just $250 million. At current funding levels it will take 80160 years to cleanup approximately 5,000 contaminated sites in the US. (Many people live near a contaminated site, but don't know it.) If annual funding was increased to $2 billion, these sites could be cleaned up in a more reasonable 1020 years. Unfortunately, the Pentagon did not request any stimulus funding to clean up these contaminated sites.For more information, please visit:WMDinDC.blogspot.com/cpeo.org/pubs/SpringValleydiseases.pdfwashingtonian.com/articles/people/6931.html

When Erica Fernandez found out that a liquefied natural gas facility was proposed for the coast of Oxnard and Malibu with a 36inch pipeline routed through lowincome neighborhoods, she was outraged. She worked in concert with the Sierra Club and Latino No on LNG group to mobilize the youth and Latino voice in protests and public meetings. She organized weekly protests at the BHP Billiton offices in Oxnard, met regularly with community members, marched through neighborhoods that would be most impacted, reached out to the media, and brought more than 250 high school students to a critical rally. Her passionate testimony at the California State Lands Commission meeting was quoted in news articles, and helped convince the Commission to vote to deny the project. Next, she helped convince the California Coastal Commission to vote 120 against the project, and worked on a letter writing and phone call campaign to the Governor asking him to veto the project, just as the commissioners did. Erica's community organizing and dogged determination played a crucial role in helping her community to resist a multinational billiondollar corporation.When Erica Fernandez found out that a liquefied natural gas facility was proposed for the coast of Oxnard and Malibu with a 36inch pipeline routed through lowincome neighborhoods, she was outraged.
