Barkeley not considered at risk for buried chemicals Study: No chemical risk at Barkeley By Scott Kirk Abilene Reporter-News (TX) August 3, 2011The part of Taylor County that contained Camp Barkeley during World War II is not considered at risk for buried chemical warfare materiel, or CWM, according to a study by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
The completed study is part of the Department of Defense's Munitions Response Site Prioritization Protocol of formerly used defense sites.
The project will not be completed until public officials and property owners have signed a letter of concurrence with the Army Corps of Engineers.
That process is expected to be completed within a year, according to the report.
Barkeley was located on 77 acres about 12 miles southwest of Abilene and home to more than 60,000 troops during World War II.
