Appendix R: Sea Disposal of Military Munitions"Under Section 314 of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2007 National Defense Authorization Act, the Department of Defense (DoD) is required to conduct a historical review of available records to determine the number, size, and probable locations of sites where the military disposed of military munitions in U.S. coastal waters. The Department will include the final Section 314 report in the FY2009 Defense Environmental Programs Annual Report to Congress. In the interim, DoD will report any new information identified during the review.
"This interim report identifies the Department's progress on the historical review. Specifically, this report identifies the general locations, types, and quantities of chemical munitions or chemical agents disposed in U.S. waters. DoD's preliminary research has identified approximately 30,000 tons of disposed chemical agent (CA) at 16 sites in U.S. waters. The term CA as used in Appendix R is limited to those substances on the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) schedule of chemicals. Figure R-1 provides a summary of the net chemical agent weight (NCAW) of disposed chemical warfare materiels (CWM) according to the chemical agent and disposal operation location. Net chemical agent weight totals were determined using assumptions regarding the container sizes and densities of the disposed materials."
