Public Outreach

Public involvement is the cornerstone of the BGCAPP project. To make sound decisions regarding chemical weapons destruction activities, we need to know what issues are important to you and your family and how you would like to be involved in the project. BGCAPP works with the Department of Defense’s Program Manager for Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives in partnering with the community to discuss issues and concerns regarding the safe, environmentally sound destruction of the stockpile.


For information on the systems contractor’s operations, please contact the BGCAPP Communications Manager Mark York at (859) 625-1291 or via email at

Citizens, businesses, public interest groups and civic organizations are encouraged to contact the project or visit the Blue Grass Chemical Stockpile Outreach Office to learn more about BGCAPP and the programs associated with the stockpile. Speaking engagements can be arranged by contacting the Outreach Office.

The Blue Grass Chemical Stockpile Outreach Office is a "one-stop" source of information about the chemical disposal program. The office staff works closely with the Army public affairs team, the state regulatory offices and local and state emergency preparedness offices to ensure the public involvement and outreach program is comprehensive. The office also regularly schedules speaking presentations for community groups and serves as a resource for locating Army points of contact and subject matter experts.

Monday - Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Additional office hours are available upon request.
