Subject: [CPEO-MEF] MG Antwerp/ACSIM begins scientific studies to counterregulator/activi
_From http://www.hqda.army.mil/acsimweb/hottopic133.shtml

"Regional Range Study
Training operations at the Massachusetts Military Reservation (MMR) have 
been severely restricted by environmental regulatory actions. Other 
ranges have also been impacted. The Army currently has insufficient 
scientifically defendable information on the actual impacts of artillery 
and other live fire on the environment. Earlier this year, VCSA directed 
the ACSIM to perform the necessary studies. The purpose of the Regional 
Range Study is to collect creditable data to identify the true impacts 
to soil, surface water and sediments of Army training/testing on ranges. 
The plan is to study
twelve ranges having similar live fire training/testing activities yet 
different climatological, groundwater/surface water and soil conditions. 
This information will allow the Army to draw general conclusions 
concerning the environmental impact of live firing on the largest 
possible number of Army ranges. The information developed in these 
studies will provide the basis for making the arguments to counter 
regulators/activists and public claims about the impact of Army ranges 
on the environment. This, in turn, will help to ensure the ranges remain 
available for use, now and in the
future. Camp Shelby was the initial installation studied under this 
program; Ft. Bliss and Jefferson Proving Ground will be evaluated in 
2002. OACSIM POC is Ms. Connie Van Brocklin, (703) 693-0546, email:
