Chicago Tribune | Hazardous stockpile puts Army to the test
Although the U.S. has destroyed VX with incinerators, no one has attempted to destroy a large stockpile using the chemical neutralization process proposed for the VX from Newport. The base is a high-security storage depot for 1,269 tons of VX--more than twice as much as what the U.S. government alleged Iraq possessed under Saddam Hussein.

DuPont has outlined five potential shipping routes to get the VX wastewater to the company's huge treatment plant in Deepwater, N.J. About 1.2 million people live within a half-mile of the route that would pass through Illinois, the study found.

For any of the routes, it would take 758 shipments to get all the wastewater to New Jersey, DuPont estimates
Perhaps the route could pass thru Crawford, Texas instead.
