Now the Program Executive Office, Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives, or PEO ACWA, has completed chemical weapons destruction in Kentucky and Colorado, local community members will continue to play an important role in the closure process. Public input and participation have been key components of the program since 1997, when ACWA implemented a public participation process known as the ACWA Dialogue to engage stakeholders. The Dialogue brought together representatives from the Department of Defense, state, tribal and federal government regulators, and diverse citizen interest groups, to work side-by-side with ACWA in selecting chemical weapons destruction technologies. Stakeholder input and involvement will remain a cornerstone of the program. Read on to learn how to access additional information or to get involved.

Additionally, both the Kentucky and Colorado Chemical Demilitarization Citizens’ Advisory Commissions, or CACs, conduct public meetings regularly. CACs are governor-appointed commissions that were formed to serve as a bridge between the community and the government by providing a forum for exchanging information about chemical weapons disposal. Their meetings are open to all members of the public who are interested in learning more about post-destruction plant closure activities in Kentucky and Colorado. For more information on the CACs, along with upcoming meeting dates and locations, visit the Kentucky and Colorado Public Involvement sections of our website.
