BGCAPP Submits Two Permit Modification Requests
On May 3, 2018, the Blue Grass Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant (BGCAPP) submitted two Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) permit modification requests to the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection.
One request is for the treatment of VX nerve agent munitions (the facility is currently permitted under a RCRA Research, Development and Demonstration permit for GB nerve agent munitions). The second request is for the storage of chemical agent-related hazardous wastes in a container storage facility located at the BGCAPP facility.
The Blue Grass Army Depot also submitted a permit modification request regarding storage of rocket motors.
The public comment period for these permit modification requests lasts 60 days, beginning May 3 and ending July 2, 2018. A public meeting will be held June 5 at 6 p.m. at the Blue Grass Chemical Stockpile Outreach Office, 1000 Commercial Dr., Ste. 2, Richmond, KY.
