Abstract:

As you requested, we reviewed the Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program CSEPP for the Oregon and Washington communities surrounding the Umatilla Chemical Depot. This program was created to protect the public in the event of an accident during destruction of the chemical weapons stockpile. You wanted to know whether the communities around the depot have made progress since our 1997 report in preparing for a chemical stockpile emergency and any key steps they could take to further their progress. Specifically, this report 1 discusses the progress communities have made since our 1997 report on their Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program efforts and 2 identifies strategies for enhancing the programs implementation in Oregon.
