  • Description:
    This pamphlet was designed for residents of Spring Valley. The purpose is to provide residents with good health practice tips for the home, lawn and garden work, and play. By following the tips in this pamphlet, residents can greatly reduce their exposure to arsenic as well as to other potentially harmful materials such as pesticides and germs that might be in the soil. During World War I, the U.S. Army conducted chemical warfare research at the site of the present Spring Valley neighborhood in Washington, DC. Chemical weapons were detonated in several areas during research and training operations. Chemical agents, including hazardous substances, ordnance, and explosive waste, were buried in parts of the area, which has since been developed. It is now occupied by residential homes and the American University campus. Spring Valley is also known as American University and American University Experiment Station.
