On Friday, June 14, Pine Bluff Arsenal personnel will be disposing of munitions discovered during a project that has been ongoing at the Arsenal since 2012.


Residents living near the Arsenal shouldn’t be alarmed if they hear a small explosion and see smoke coming from the northern part of the site Friday morning, according to a news release.


“This project is part of an on-going effort by the Arsenal to address potential safety, health and environmental issues, and includes partnership efforts between the installation, the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,” according to the release.
