The Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant (PCAPP) Site Project Manager delivered a project update to a Colorado Springs group Oct. 17 to explain how the chemical weapons stockpile in Pueblo will be destroyed.
“It is exciting to share the science and engineering that have gone into the design and construction of the plant to enable it to safely process aging weapons,” said Greg Mohrman, site project manager, PCAPP. “Our presentations stimulate interest in science, technology, engineering and math disciplines because they show real-world application for solving difficult problems.”
Mohrman spoke at St. Paul Catholic Church, providing an overview of PCAPP and its Explosive Destruction System. Approximately 23 members of the men’s breakfast team, many of them veterans, attended the presentation.
“The people here live kind of close to it so there’s a natural interest,” said Deacon Richard Bowles.
“Greg did a great job,” said Mike O’Connor, a breakfast team member. “One aspect the group found interesting is the care and safeguards that are in place. That came across loud and clear.”
Last spring a PCAPP presentation was provided to another Colorado Springs group, the Rampart Range Kiwanis, indicating interest in the PCAPP project extends beyond Pueblo County.
“I encourage citizens who live and work near the Pueblo Chemical Depot to learn more about this history-making project,” Mohrman said.
