There's a house in the middle of the Elizabeth River with a critical job for the U.S. Navy


Recommended Posts

ON THE ELIZABETH RIVER
You might have seen the building and its long piers that sit in the water off Lambert’s Point. You fly over it when you land at the local airport. You can spot it while driving over the West Norfolk Bridge in Portsmouth.

You might have seen an aircraft carrier sitting between the piers and wondered what the heck was going on.

Its job is critical: almost every new warship on the East Coast makes a pit stop to permanently reduce its magnetic signature. It’s an important task that makes ships less vulnerable to attacks from underwater mines. https://pilotonline.com/news/military/local/article_acd7117c-8529-11e8-848c-db1203677306.html
