Public comments on the environmental assessment for a proposed action to augment the Blue Grass plant’s processing of nerve agent munitions are due by June 17, 2019.
“We invite project stakeholders to learn more about the assessment and to give us their thoughts on the subject,” said Leslie Ware, deputy site project manager, Anniston Field Office. “We will consider the comments before making a final decision.”
The public was invited to a May 21 meeting in Richmond, Kentucky, to learn more about the environmental assessment and how to comment during the process. Experts provided a poster session to help attendees understand the subject and information provided and Ware delivered a presentation on the topic. Members of the public were encouraged to ask questions about the assessment.
Karen Pratt, a Madison County, Kentucky, resident, says she was unaware chemical weapons were stored near Richmond, when she moved here in 1988. “We have been interested in keeping up with the project ever since and appreciate the opportunity to learn more about this and get answers to the questions we had about the proposed action.”
