Nerve Agent Emission Found at Kentucky Depot

A small amount of leaked sarin nerve agent was discovered in a structure used to store M55 chemical warfare rockets at the Blue Grass Army Depot in Kentucky, the Richmond Register reported on Monday (see GSN, March 13).

A specialized filter has been attached to one vent to prevent any dangerous material from escaping into the environment.

“At this time, the leak poses no danger or risk to the citizens of Madison or surrounding counties,” according to a depot press release (Richmond Register, Aug. 6).
