The Army has lifted a security order concealing a list of World War I-era munitions uncovered in the D.C. neighborhood.
At a community meeting Tuesday, officials with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said the list of recovered munitions would be made public next month.
D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton brought officials to update residents on the cleanup of chemical munitions from an American University experiment station during World War I.
He said workers are rebuilding protective structures at a vacant home behind the university where the chemical agent mustard was uncovered in August. Work will resume there in November.
