Army to begin disposal of unexploded weapons at proving ground

June 21, 1999|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Officials at Aberdeen Proving Ground will begin disposing of nearly 400 unexploded rounds of munitions today in a remote section of the Army post's Edgewood area.

Ten to 50 pounds of explosives will be used to destroy the munitions, which contain rounds of tear gas, in groups of five to 10.

The disposal is expected to take about a week, and officials said noise and vibrations may be noticed off base.
