Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Response to Expedited Chem Stockpile Disposal
Greetings,   I am some what surprised at the news release about the
stockpile cleanup. The current plan is projected to take till 2006. But 
if you read the press release it states that the entire stockpile with 
be gone by the end of 2002. Seems to me that if you sudden cut 4 years 
out of a project, something else is going to be cut. I do not want that 
to be the safety factor. It seems to me that after years of planning 
safety checks, reviews and a work schedule that was going to take till 
2006 to suddenly be able to get rid of the stockpile in a little over 11 
months, something does not seem right to me. As you read the release you 
are told that the accelerated cleanup it due to the events of Sept.11. 
We have always voiced a concern over the stockpile and the chance that 
an aircraft could crash in the storage area, it is near two airfields. I 
don't want to sound rude, but why did it take the death of over 3000 
people and the destruction of two of the largest building in the free 
world to step up the removal, I think I could live with the idea of 
someone trying to crash into the stockpile instead of taking a chance 
rushing in to remove a hazard and make a bigger mistake in the process.
