The Umatilla Chemical Agent Disposal Facility
Contingency Plan

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.
