Subject: [CPEO-MEF] MUNITIONS: Kitsap (WA) Rifle and Revolver Club private small arms range
Prospects for cleanup uncertain for range

CENTRAL KITSAP — Environmental officials from county, state and federal agencies are investigating toxic pollution at the well-known gun range on Seabeck Highway, but nobody can say when a cleanup might be required.

Marcus Carter, executive officer of Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club, hopes that the environmental agencies can be persuaded to leave the club alone as long as it continues to follow “best management practices” approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Under provisions of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, a shooting range can be considered a recycling facility as long as someone actively removes lead fragments that can contaminate the environment. Were the range to shut down, it could come under increased scrutiny for a costly environmental cleanup.
