As of Oct. 7, the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant’s Explosive Destruction System completed its third day of full operations after nearly two months of unplanned downtime to repair the door of the vessel. The tally for items destroyed to date is 355, including 255 105mm munitions, 48 155mm rounds, 42 4.2-inch mortars and 10 Department of Transportation bottles.

The system’s initial mission, which began earlier this year in March, is to destroy 560 artillery projectiles, mortars and steel bottles containing agent samples deemed unsuitable for processing by the main plant’s automated equipment.
