Subject: [CPEO-MEF] WATER: Bluegrass Depot (KY) discharges

Water used to clean explosives overflowed twice at a Kentucky Army depot, and a worker was told to dump rainwater that collected in another part of the depot into the sewer, according to a report obtained by an environmental watchdog.

The Washington-based Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility [PEER] says the years-old documents it recently received from the Army raise concerns about the spillage and dumping of potentially contaminated wastewater.

The heavily redacted documents detail Army investigators' interviews with a Kentucky environmental regulator and a worker at the chemical weapons storage site at Blue Grass Army Depot in Richmond. They were posted last week on the watchdog group's site.
