In the summer of 2004, a clam-dredging operation off New Jersey
pulled up an old artillery shell. These are the chemicals of warfare
some of the chemical weapons that the Army dumped into the sea. The artillery rounds and steel containers that they're in
are likely to be corroding and unstable. They present a deadly risk.MUSTARD GAS
Off Virginia? 'There's No Guarantee'
Large quantities of chemical weapons were dumped off the state's coast. Watermen and
environmentalists are fearful and demand answers.
Lurking off Virginia are tens of thousands of mustard gas shells and

this arsenal in safe and environmentally responsible ways. House to probe chemical dumping
looks at the Army's dumping of chemical weapons in the sea. Other countries and environmentalists want answers as well.
lawmakers are demanding the Army reveal everything it knows about where it dumped chemical weapons into the world's oceans,
as well as provide proof the munitions won't leak and cause an environmental catastrophe. Dredging
up a long-buried secret
The Army will study a chemical weapon inadvertently brought ashore to assess risks of ocean
The Army hopes to learn more about the risks from ocean-dumped chemical weapons by testing and dismantling an artillery
shell filled with mustard agent that was dredged up in October off the coast of New Jersey. DOD orders Army to find dumpsites
A high-ranking official promises a comprehensive effort to locate long-lost
The military is plowing through old records to find any and all information on the Army's ocean dumping
