Pueblo Chemical Stockpile Outreach Office
The Pueblo Chemical Stockpile Outreach Office, located at 104 W. B St. in Pueblo, Colorado, is now open by appointment only until further notice. Visitors will be required to comply with COVID-19 requirements, which include but not limited to using face masks and practicing social distancing. Additionally, future public meetings will not be held in person until further notice. Please check back soon for updated information. Inquiries should be directed to Ron Eccher, Public Outreach Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org.
To schedule an appointment to visit the Pueblo Chemical Stockpile Outreach Office, please call (719) 546-0400 or email PuebloOutreach@iem.com. For the safety of all, the doors will remain locked and visitors must enter through the “main entrance” at the time of their appointment. We are moving to an appointment-based system to limit the number of people in the office at one time and ensure social distancing guidelines can be met.
All visitors must comply with the following Department of Defense (DOD) guidelines to visit the outreach office:
- Visitors must make an appointment by telephone or email.
- A face mask covering a visitor’s nose and mouth must be placed on before entering the office and worn through the entirety on the appointment.
- All visitors must maintain proper social distance of six feet while inside the outreach office.
- Refrain from shaking hands and touching surfaces. Hand sanitizer will be available in the waiting area for the visitor’s use and protection.
- If you feel ill, please do not come in the outreach office. Staff will be more than happy to communicate by telephone or email to reschedule your appointment.
- Parents are kindly asked to avoid bringing small children to the outreach office and to keep children from climbing under or over barriers. This will help ensure the child’s safety as well as the safety of others in the office.
These new steps and safety protocols have been put in place to keep you and our staff healthy and safe. As the situation evolves, we will continue to revise these guidelines. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging period.
What are we doing at the outreach office to ensure the safety of our staff, vendors and the public as we slowly reopen?
- Employees are following the state and local “return to work” regulations.
- Outreach office staff are following strict new protocols including social distancing and wearing face masks when six feet of space cannot be maintained.
- Outreach office employees and visitors will have their temperature taken using an infrared no-touch thermometer upon their arrival to the outreach office.
- Persons with an elevated temperature (above 100.5 degrees Fahrenheit) will be asked to leave the office to preserve the health and safety of employees and visitors.
- Staff members who are ill will not come into the office and will stay home.
- A waiting area has been setup in the outreach office to help maintain six feet of separation.
- Staff will clean and disinfect the waiting area between visitors.
At the outreach office, you can learn more about the chemical weapons destruction project, including information on how PCAPP is destroying the Pueblo chemical weapons stockpile using neutralization followed by biotreatment and Static Detonation Chamber units.
Visitors may view displays and examine models of chemical weapons at the outreach office. Please visit the PEO ACWA YouTube page to watch project videos that showcase plant progress as well as provide information on how chemical weapons are being destroyed at PCAPP. At this time, the outreach office has removed all hands-on displays. Visitors will no longer be able to step inside a protective suit and miniature robots will not be available in an effort to avoid cross contamination. All interactions in the outreach office must occur while remaining at a safe distance and while wearing a mask. After your visit, we invite you to provide feedback on the project through the online questionnaire.
Staff are not currently available to speak at meetings in compliance with restrictions on large public gatherings. Please call or email to schedule an appointment at the outreach office or speak with a staff member to receive information about PCAPP to share with your business or organization.
Job seekers are encouraged to visit the Job and Business Opportunities page for more information and current job openings at the Pueblo plant.
The office also maintains information about the Program Executive Office, Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives, the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot and environmental laws and compliance.
Outreach Office staff appreciate the community’s support and cooperation, as well as their continued interest in the project.
