Officials at the Radford Army Ammunitions Plant announced new strategies for reducing toxic waste at its open burning grounds --and new ways of including the public in those efforts.

New River Valley residents had a chance to question officials of the Radford Army Ammunitions Plant, known as the Arsenal, at a community meeting. The plant has long been a controversial neighbor to its surrounding communities in southwestern Virginia.  Its quarterly community meetings, like the one at the Christiansburg Library December 14, may be helping foster a dialogue that could benefit both camps.
