Chemical Demilitarization Program

Selected Documents from the Administrative Record 


All documents will be available for public review at the Hazardous Materials and Waste Management Division Records Center during normal business hours. In addition, Information Repositories are located throughout Pueblo County, and will contain current working documents, figures and drawings. Information Repositories are not intended to contain the complete Administrative Record; rather Information Repositories are intended to make review of current work documents easily accessible to the public.  The list and locations of the Information Repositories can be found in the drop-down menu below.



Note:  The Public Comment Period for the Explosive Destruction System is open from October 25 through December 27.  Because it is not a modification to the the PCAPP RD&D permit it is located on the Class 3 Permit Modification to the Pueblo Chemical Depot Hazardous Waste Permit web page.  Look for the Explosive Destruction System drop-down menu.
