Other Publications.  The joint Army Regulation (AR) 385-63 and MCO
2.2.4.1
P3570.1A, Policies and Procedures for Firing Ammunition for Training, Target
Practice, and Combat are coordinated with this military handbook.
Environmental Concerns.  Environmental regulations will become more
2.2.4.2
stringent.  Design and site the range considering future cleanup efforts in
the intended impact areas and other areas where MAD and RC may land.  Avoid
shooting over flowing water courses or into wetlands.  Nearby communities will
complain about noise.
2.2.5
Best Management Practices
2.2.5.1
Lead.  Lead (and other associated projectile components) is a
hazardous heavy metal that may adversely affect humans when finely divided
dust is taken into the body or lead particulate is transported into a drinking
water supply.  The following procedures will keep the lead on the range, treat
it to be chemically harmless , and recycle it when safety requires its removal.
The procedures involve soil amendments, vegetation management, engineering
controls, contaminant monitoring, reclaiming, and recycling.
