Abstract : The Pine Bluff Arsenal is a U.S. Army Armament, Munitions, and Chemical Command (AMCCOM) facility located in Jefferson County, Arkansas; 30 miles southeast of Little Rock and eight miles northwest of Pine Bluff, Arkansas. The arsenal encompasses 14,956 acres of land, most of which (61 percent) is designated as open space/clearance zones. Most of this area is managed for forest products under the arsenal's timber management program. Approximately 21 percent of the facility supports the munitions supply and storage operations (18 percent conventional munitions, 3 percent chemical agent and munitions). Six percent of the facility contains the conventional munitions maintenance and production areas. The remaining 15 percent of the property is comprised of other administrative, operational, and housing areas along with the Food and Drug Administration's National Center for Toxicological Research. The arsenal has been in operation since 1941 and has been storing lethal unitary chemical agents since 1942. The arsenal is one of eight sites that stores lethal unitary agents in the United States.
