Residents living near the Pine Bluff Arsenal shouldn’t be alarmed if they hear small explosions and see smoke coming from the site Friday, Sept. 20.


Staff will be disposing of weapons discovered during a project that has been ongoing at the Arsenal since 2012, 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.
