Does the proposed Munitions Response Prioritization Protocol
address "underwater UXO"?

Reply from Lenny Siegel

Munitions response sites on "water bodies" are included. The location
data element mentions tidal action and flooding as geological conditions
that might expose munitions. Subsistence fishing is mentioned in "types
of activities." But commercial fishing is not included along with
agriculture and forestry.

So I would say that underwater UXO is included, but there's room for improvement.
