Mustard agent vapor was discovered near a chemical weapons storage facility near Pueblo, Colorado, CBS Denver reported today on its web news site. The facility is a military storage facility, as shown in the photo, that stores chemical weapons.
“The Pueblo Chemical Depot announced that a chemical monitoring crew Tuesday detected and confirmed the presence of mustard agent vapor inside a chemical storage igloo,” CBS Denver reported.
The story said that federal, state and Pueblo County officials were informed of the chemical leak.
A story from KKTV.com reported, “The crew detected the vapor inside a chemical storage igloo that contains 105 mm projectiles. They found it during routine operations. Passive carbon filters prevent that contaminated air from getting out of the igloo. Crews are now installing 1,000 cubic ft./minute air filters to lower the levels of the contaminated air. They'll do this before a crew goes inside the igloo wearing protective equipment. They'll search for a possible leak.”
Officials insist there is no safety concerns about the storage of the chemical weapons. Officials at the facility storing them said in a statement, “All operations associated with finding the leaking munitions will be completed under strict engineering controls, protecting the environment and safety of all depot employees and surrounding communities.”
