On Feb. 1, NCPTT offered technical advice to the Historic Preservation Training Center about the cleaning and repair of 165 cenotaphs located in Congressional Cemetery in Washington, D.C. The work, which is funded by the National Cemetery Administration, began in October and is expected to continue into FY 2008. Mary Striegel and Church completed a consultation report that details:
- a NCPTT review of cleaning tests undertaken by HPTC,
- recommendations for short-term testing relevant to the evaluation of cleaning efforts on the cenotaphs,
- preliminary treatment recommendations for the Macomb and Arsenal marble monuments, and
- proposed scope of work for further involvement by NCPTT in the project.
