Background

  • Pueblo Chemical Depot is a U.S. Army facility that began operations in southeastern Colorado in 1942.
  • Its principal mission was the receipt, storage, issuance, maintenance, and disposal of general supplies and conventional and chemical munitions.
  • The Depot’s current mission includes safe, secure storage and monitoring of the chemical stockpile while protecting the workforce, the public, and the environment, set the conditions for stockpile destruction and prepare for depot closure.
  • Historically, the Depot generated, treated, stored and disposed of hazardous and solid wastes onsite.
  • Waste generated at the facility included, but was not limited to military explosives compounds and solvents, etc.
  • These sites are being investigated and remediated by the U.S. Army Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) environmental restoration program, which is separate from the chemical weapons stockpile disposal program.
