PBA to conduct investigational study

Army officials at Pine Bluff Arsenal announced that they will begin an investigational study of some remote areas of the installation. This project is part of an ongoing restoration effort by the U.S. Army and the Arsenal to address potential safety, health and environmental issues. These areas, which were used during the 1940s, may contain discarded munitions and other warfare materials.

The investigation is expected to last approximately six months, and includes partnership efforts between the Arsenal, the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
