Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Guard violations at Camp Edwards (MA)
Guard scolded for base lapses

CAMP EDWARDS - Army National Guard officials were called on the carpet
this week for violating environmental regulations at Camp Edwards on the
Massachusetts Military Reservation.

 Local National Guard leaders met with state environmental officials
Monday and yesterday about the recent violations. They also discussed
what the Guard will do in the future to make sure it is in compliance
with state environmental protection regulations and state endangered
species laws.

 The violations occurred during two construction projects to update old
firing ranges, during which 6.5 acres of pitch pine and scrub oak trees
were clear-cut. And a ban on using lead ammunition at outdoor ranges was
violated in October during a Guard training session at which lead
bullets were used for target practice.
