The Blue Grass Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant team was committed to protecting the workforce, public and environment during their safe destruction of the chemical weapons stockpile at the Blue Grass Army Depot, and continues that commitment into the plant’s closure stage.
The BGCAPP team fulfills this commitment by adhering to numerous local, state and federal laws and regulations. This includes the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, which gives the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency authority to control hazardous waste, including generation, transportation, treatment, storage and disposal, to protect human health and the environment.
In addition, BGCAPP operates under a hazardous waste permit from the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection. This permit was granted after numerous Army studies determined the destruction of the stockpile would have no significant impacts to human health or the environment. Throughout the lifecycle of the plant, any major permit modifications require a public comment period and approval by the state. We welcome your feedback and encourage your participation in this process.
