One Team One Mission
In September 2002, Bechtel Pueblo Team was awarded a Department of Defense contract to design, construct, systemize, pilot test, operate, and close PCAPP. Bechtel teamed with Parsons, Amentum, Battelle and GP Strategies to help accomplish the mission.
Chemical Weapons Destruction Technologies
The Program Executive Office, Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives program, the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot and the surrounding community worked together to select a munitions destruction method: neutralization followed by biotreatment. Later, static detonation chambers were added to support main plant operations.
PCAPP’s mission was the safe and environmentally-sound destruction of the chemical weapons stockpile stored at the depot. The Surety Program helped ensure that employees are reliable, effective and competent to perform the important mission of safely destroying the chemical weapons stockpile.
The City of Pueblo is located in Southern Colorado approximately 115 miles south of Denver. Nestled in the Banana Belt, Pueblo is known for its 300 days of sunshine and its famous Pueblo Green Chile, which is a staple in Pueblo cuisine.
