I figured you guys would know. If you're building or adding to an outdoor range, is there a point or situation where you need to involve any federal agencies? I heard something about the Army Corps of Engineers, but no details. How about the EPA? This information might help a nice club from making a mistake.

Thanks!

My guess would be lead clean up.I seen a web page that has a backstop system the catches all the bullits and "dumps" them into a bucket,I need to find the info and give it to the range i belong to.


If I find the info I will post it here,But knowing the board the company is a member here

Thanks for the links, but they don't really tell you anything unless you buy something.

There is a part of the EPA regulations that a lot of people don't know about. Lead bullets are not considered a hazardous waste under federal regulation. In order to be a hazardous waste, a material has to have been discarded. EPA has ruled that bullets at an active firing range have been used as intended and thus have not been discarded. Individual states may have different regulations that might apply.
