ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. – The U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot, in conjunction with the Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives (ACWA) program, has determined that the installation and operation of an explosive destruction technology (EDT) at the depot will have no significant environmental impacts. The EDT facility will augment the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant (PCAPP), which is currently under construction, by destroying a limited portion of the depot’s inventory of chemical munitions that present a problem to destroy in the main plant.

The EDT facility will augment the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant (PCAPP), which is currently under construction, by destroying a limited portion of the depot’s inventory of chemical munitions that present a problem to destroy in the main plant. In April 2012, an environmental assessment was completed to meet the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act, or NEPA, and Title 32 Code of Federal Regulations Part 651, to address any potential impacts of the installation and operation of an EDT at the depot. In accordance with the NEPA process, a draft Finding of No Significant Impact was prepared and provided for an extended public comment period in the spring of 2012. Following review of the comments received, it was concluded that no additional analysis is necessary for this proposed action under NEPA. The “Finding of No Significant Impact,” as well as the record of public comments and responses from ACWA may be found on the ACWA Website at https://www.pmacwa.army.mil/pcapp/pcapp_edt.html and at the following locations:  Robert Hoag Rawlings Public Library, 100 East Abriendo Avenue in Pueblo  McHarg Park Community Center, 405 2nd Lane in Avondale  Boone Community Center, 421 East First Street in Boone  Pueblo Chemical Stockpile Outreach Office, 104 West B Street, Pueblo, CO For more information about ACWA, please visit: www.pmacwa.army.mil. -30-
