The Blue Grass Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant at Bluegrass Army Depot in Richmond opened its first operational building, the fire water pump house, last week. Water from its two 250,000- gallon tanks will be used in the chemical weapons destruction process and to fight fires if there's ever a need. Destruction of the weapons stockpile is slated to begin in 2018 and end in 2021.
