Incinerator Will Increase Burn Rate

Anniston, AL – The Anniston Army Depot's chemical weapons incinerator has been given approval to increase the number of rockets destroyed each hour. Site manager Tim Garrett says the U-S Environmental Protection Agency gave the go ahead. He says it will allow workers to increase rocket disposal to a maximum of 25 per hour. That's about 75 percent of the rate demonstrated during trial burns two months ago. Operations had been limited to destroying 16 rockets per hour.
