Nansemond project’s Restoration Advisory Board to meet Thursday


SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Military officials ensured the community on Wednesday that the environmental mission at Former Nansemond Ordnance Depot remains a priority for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

In late August, leaders said the last large piece of waterfront property left in Hampton Roads would be ready for redevelopment following government cleanup.

It has historically been used by the U.S. military to destroy weapons.

They said if all goes according to plan, ground could be broken for the construction of new homes next year on the location.

Community members can learn more about this formerly-used defense site and the latest cleanup progress during the project’s quarterly Restoration Advisory Board meeting Thursday. A virtual session is set for 6:15-8:15 p.m. via Webex.

Topics of conversation include:

  • Area of concern #11 – Track H & I Magazine Line
  • Shoreline-removal action for munitions and explosives of concern
  • Horseshoe Pond remedial action

All quarterly meetings are open to the public.

New members are welcome and others can watch the meeting here.
