Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE, CHEMWEAPONS: Umatilla Chemical Depot (OR) tour
Businesses to tour Depot to see available property

October 5, 2009

HERMISTON -- Businesses are invited to visit the Umatilla Chemical Depot on Oct. 20 to see the buildings and property that could go up for sale when the site no longer is needed to store chemical weapons. That includes a complex of buildings and barracks in the southeast corner of the depot with good access to Interstate 84. The site is bordered by Interstate 84 and 82. Buildings and structures that will be considered for sale will be cleaned to Army standards.

The last of the chemical weapons stored on the site are expected to be incinerated sometime between next summer and summer 2011.

"We hope to retain jobs that will be lost," said Brian Cole, executive director for the Dana Mission Support Team, a contractor for the Umatilla Army Depot Reuse Authority.

The reuse authority, which includes representatives from Umatilla and Morrow counties and ports and the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, is developing a land use plan for the 19,728 acres of the depot. It's expected to consider a mix of economic development, environmental protection and the needs of the Oregon State Guard.
