Newport, Indiana

The claim: Army Depot - VX nerve gas storage facility. Secret meetings were held here in 1998 regarding the addition of the Kankakee River watershed to the Heritage Rivers Initiative.

What it really is: The Newport Chemical Depot did store VX nerve gas there, at least until 2008 when it was all destroyed.

The depot itself was closed in June 2010, and is now in plans with the local community to be used for civilian use.
