Chemical Weapons Destruction Resumes in Pueblo
Operations at the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant’s Explosive Destruction System (PCAPP EDS) restarted Oct. 5 with the successful destruction of four 155mm projectiles. This was the first operation of the system since damage to the door seal surface was discovered in early August. The system’s initial mission is to destroy 560 artillery projectiles, mortars and steel bottles containing agent samples deemed unsuitable for processing by the main plant’s automated equipment. Including the munitions destroyed today, the PCAPP EDS has safely eliminated 351 items, with 209 munitions remaining in this campaign.
