The Umatilla Chemical Agent Disposal Facility
The Umatilla Chemical Agent Disposal Facility (UMCDF) is located in Umatilla and Morrow Counties
in Northeastern Oregon on the Umatilla Chemical Depot (UMCD). The UMCDF is a hazardous waste
storage and treatment facility that utilizes four incinerators to destroy a
stockpile of about 3,717 tons of chemical-warfare agents stored at the UMCD
since 1962. The liquid chemical agents stored at the UMCD include nerve
agents VX and GB and blister agent HD (a/k/a Mustard).
The UMCDF Contingency Plan is designed to minimize hazards to human health or the environment
from fires, explosions, or any unplanned sudden or nonsudden release of hazardous waste
constituents to air, soil, or surface water.
