ANC Millennium Area Headstone Removal Project

George Washington Memorial Parkway » ANC Millennium Area Headstone Removal Project » Document List

As part of the proposed Millennium Area Headstone Removal Project, Arlington National Cemetery (ANC), a unit of the Arlington National Military Cemeteries (ANMC), with coordination from the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), is seeking a Special Use Permit from the National Park Service (NPS) for the removal of headstones and subsequent stabilization of stream channels. Currently, there are approximately 1,200 headstones being used as stream stabilization within ANC and NPS-administered property. The project consists of headstone removal within approximately 1,400 linear feet (LF) of the stream in an eight-acre forested stream valley within ANC and NPS properties in Arlington, Virginia. In addition, after the headstones are removed, the stream banks will be stabilized in a manner that returns the stream into a more natural system.
