- Repairs and testing continued after seepage took two of three 30-day hydrolysate storage tanks out of commission in mid-May. One tank already was repaired, inspected and returned to service. The second affected tank is being cleaned in preparation for inspection and repair.
- Static Detonation Chamber (SDC) site construction continued in July at the former site of the Explosive Destruction System. Three SDCs have been purchased to augment the main plant by destroying 4.2-inch mortar rounds and any other problematic projectiles. Concrete pouring and some electrical work are underway, and the first SDC unit is in transit to the site.
- As of July 26, 147,726 155mm projectiles had been processed in the main plant.
- As of July 31, PCAPP had reduced the total chemical agent stockpile in Colorado by one-third.
- Baseline Reconfiguration of 4.2-inch boxed mortar rounds from boxed storage to pallets ready for processing continues. As of July 26, 43,595 4.2-inch mortar rounds have been reconfigured.

New to PCAPP?
The Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant is a state-of-the-art facility built to destroy the chemical weapons stockpile stored at the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot, Colorado. The main plant uses neutralization followed by biotreatment to destroy the mustard agent stockpile. The safety of the workforce and neighboring communities is the project’s most important priority.
