Newly formed group wants to keep Radford Arsenal accountable

Group members say they want to create public awareness.

BLACKSBURG, Va. – Virginia Tech students and Blacksburg community members have launched a group pushing for more environmental protections.

Citizens for Arsenal Accountability is an incorporated chapter of the Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League, which has openly opposed practices at the Arsenal, as well as fracking and the installment of pipelines in our area.

Group members say they want to create public awareness.

"We want the Radford Arsenal to be our friendly neighbor and we want them to be accountable for the actions they take," said the organization's chair, Justin Harber.

The group plans to start educational meetings in the future.
