Port Arthur, Texas, Citizens Protest Shipment of Nerve Agent Waste

3 October 2007 at 10:21:33 AM

Wrote about this before-how charming that OTHER STATES can take their NERVE AGENT WASTE and ship it to Texas for incineration. What is it about Texas that makes this country think it's the dumping ground for crapola? Maybe it's the people in charge, eh, who need to be VOTED OUT.

PORT ARTHUR - A small group of opponents vowed Saturday to continue their fight to stop nerve agent waste from being shipped into Port Arthur from out of state and incinerated at a local plant.

"What are we going to do? Just stand back and lay back? No, we aren't going to do that," Warren Field, who grew up in the Southeast Texas community, said during a rally.

Since April, a plant in Port Arthur has been incinerating thousands of gallons of VX hydrolysate, caustic wastewater that is a byproduct of the destruction of the deadly nerve agent VX.

The Army is destroying its entire supply of the Cold War-era nerve agent VX, which can kill with a single drop, at the Newport Chemical Depot, a government-owned facility in western Indiana.

The wastewater is being shipped nearly 1,000 miles away, to Port Arthur.

Under a contract, Veolia Environmental Services will burn about 2 million gallons of the chemical waste over the next three years at its Port Arthur facility.
