Abstract:

This report documents the results of a screening-level assessment of soil erosion and lead mobility from active small arms ranges at Fort Jackson, South Carolina. This assessment was performed to support the development of a general assessment methodology for assessing environmental concerns at active Army small arms training ranges. This report is intended to serve as an example of how the assessment procedures can be applied, the information required to be collected, analyzed, and interpreted, and how decisions on possible range modifications are made. It is part of the Army 5 overall proactive effort to increase range sustainability and environmental management while maintaining the essential troop training mission of small arms ranges.
