Harry Jaffe: Must the Army destroy bombs in D.C.?

Let's see if this makes sense to you:

The Army Corps of Engineers wants to dispose of bombs that could be considered weapons of mass destruction behind Sibley Memorial Hospital, on federal land close to the Dalecarlia Reservoir, which supplies drinking water to D.C. and parts of Northern Virginia.

This is a fictional scenario, right? The Army wouldn't destroy bombs behind a hospital, near a reservoir, in the midst of Spring Valley, one of D.C.'s most elite neighborhoods?
