Abstract:

This document has been prepared for the U.S. Army to support the Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for the Chemical Stockpile Disposal Program. This report describes the results of a Comprehensive probabilistic assessment of the frequency and magnitude of chemical agent release for the storage, handling, on-site transportation, off-site transportation, and chemical demilitarization plant operations associated with the disposal of the chemical stockpile at two regional disposal sites or at a single national disposal site. Rail transportation from seven sites, air transportation from two sites and water transportation from one site were the off-site transportation modes analyzed. Both internal accident initiators e.g., human error, equipment malfunction and external accident initiators e.g., earthquakes, airplane crashes were included in the analysis. Keywords Chemical stockpile, Chemical munitions, Transportation of chemical munitions, Risk analysis, Hazard analysis, Probabilistic risk assessment.
