Four upcoming Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant public meetings will be held in person on June 1.

“We will be holding public meetings at the Pueblo Chemical Stockpile Outreach Office in downtown Pueblo to discuss six proposed permit modification requests,” said Mike Saupe, environmental manager, PCAPP. “These public meetings provide an opportunity for the public to give their feedback.”

Permit modification requests are routine. When plant systems need replacement, upgrade or repair, a permit modification request is often required. The meetings will be held at the Outreach Office, 104 W. B St., beginning at 1:30 p.m. on June 1.

The meetings address items such as improvements to PCAPP laboratory testing instruments, Static Detonation Chamber components, leak mitigation and waste analysis. Each of the requests require modification of the plant’s Resource Conservation and Recovery Act permit and the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot Hazardous Waste permit. The public meetings allow for community input into the  proposed operations changes and the plant’s compliance with Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment regulations.

The meeting will be streamed online via Microsoft Teams.

Public comments on these permit modifications can be sent to Kevin Mackey, Hazardous Waste Permitting unit leader, CDPHE, at Kevin.Mackey@state.co.us.
