DuPont Chambers Works Caustic VX Hydrolysate Treatment


In July, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued a second report on the treatment of VX nerve agent process residue
(Caustic VX Hydrolysate or CVXH) at the DuPont Chambers Works in Deepwater, NJ. The discharge from the Cham-
bers Works treatment process would go to the Delaware River. The previous CDC report identified several limitations on
available data that needed to be addressed, including the limited effectiveness of the process in removing the phosphonate
loading from the treatment plant effluent. The report also addressed other issues not previously considered.
DAS is in the process of reviewing the report to determine if there is any basis for reconsidering our opposition to the
processing of this material at the Chambers Works and its subsequent discharge to the Delaware River. DuPont has stated
that they have no current plans to request or amend a NJ Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NJPDES) Permit.
