Division of Waste Management
Blue Grass Army Depot

The Blue Grass Army Depot (BGAD) is located near Richmond, Ky.  On that site is the Blue Grass Army Chemical Activity (BGCA), which stores 2 percent of the nation's chemical weapons stockpile, comprised of nerve agents GB and VX as well as mustard agent.  A portion of these weapons has been stored at the BGAD since the 1940s, and one of the missions of the site is to destroy these weapons in a manner that is safe for the community. 

The Blue Grass Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant (BGCAPP) and the Explosive Destruction Technology (EDT) are the two processes that will be used to achieve this mission. The Kentucky Division of Waste Management (DWM) has been entrusted to ensure compliance of storage regulations; review, amend and approve permit applications; keep stakeholders and the community informed of activities; and ensure compliance during construction and operation of the BGCAPP and EDT.

If you have any questions regarding the plant's operations and projects, read the Demil Dispatch newsletters below or call Dale Burton, section supervisor, at 502-564-6716, ext. 4717
