National Guard Bureau to Inspect Former Amsterdam Rifle Range
AMSTERDAM, NY (readMedia) -- The National Guard Bureau will be checking an old National Guard rifle range in Johnstown for potential environmental concerns this summer.

The range is one of 23 former New York Army National Guard training sites that the National Guard Bureau will be inspecting for potential hazards.

Current property owners are in the process of being asked to allow contractors on their property to conduct this check.

The Department of Defense Military Munitions Response Program mandated the inspections. The program is being conducted worldwide to address human health, safety, and environmental concerns at former non-operational defense sites. This includes over 400 sites in 48 states and two territories formerly used by the National Guard.

Inspectors will try to identify environmental liabilities that may be present due to historical use of the property formerly owned, leased or used by the New York Army National Guard for training
