A new interim site project manager has been named for the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant at the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot in southern Colorado.
“I want to thank Walton Levi for stepping up and taking on the role on top of what he’s already doing,” said Michael Abaie, program executive officer for Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives, during the Feb. 27 Colorado Chemical Demilitarization Citizens’ Advisory Commission meeting.
Levi, the deputy site project manager at the Pueblo plant, will serve as site project manager for an interim period of 120 days while a candidate search is conducted.
A graduate of Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Levi became a chemical engineer for the Chemical Agent Munitions Destruction System in 1987, later serving as an environmental engineer and project manager and director of risk management as well as managing restoration and remediation programs.
The site project manager is the lead government official responsible for management of the pilot plant’s field office and oversight of the Bechtel Pueblo Team, the systems contractor for the design, construction, systemization, operation and closure of the plant.
