PUEBLO CHEMICAL DEPOT, Colo. – Officials confirmed processing has begun of the first mustard agent-filled munitions today in the heavily automated facility built to destroy the chemical weapons stockpile stored at the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot.
Demonstrations showing the workers, facilities and systems are ready to conduct operations were completed Aug. 13, moving the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant one step closer to agent operations.
Pueblo County Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program staff shared safety messages regarding the chemical stockpile stored at the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot during an annual event in Avondale, Colorado, August 11.
Experts at the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant use stainless and carbon steel containers to package and store some projectiles that are not well suited for the facility’s heavily-automated process.
