The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Hazardous Materials and Waste Management Division has authority to regulate the United States Army's program to destroy the assembled chemical weapons stored at Pueblo Chemical Depot. The Division fully supports public involvement early and often in the permit process. The documents available for this program are being made available to insure that the public has every opportunity possible to be informed and involved as this project evolves.
The Depot currently stores 2,611 tons of mustard chemical agent in assembled munitions, less than 10% of the nation’s original stockpile. The munitions are 105-millimeter (mm) and 155-mm projectiles, and 4.2-inch mortar cartridges. The weapons are stored in earth covered igloos on the Depot, adjacent to the facility being constructed to destroy the mustard. The U.S. Army Element Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives manages the chemical weapons stockpile disposal program.The Depot is owned by the U.S. Army and is under the operating authority of the U.S. Army Chemical Materials Agency.
The Administrative Record contains project documents used by the Hazardous Materials and Waste Management Division to make permit decisions. All documents used to make decisions on the draft permit will be included, except for publicly available texts and reference materials. Complex figures and drawings unsuitable for web downloading will be available for review at some information repositories, but not all locations. 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.
