The CAL FIRE Training Center has three shooting ranges that are used for Peace Officer firearms training. The far ends of the ranges have earthen berms that act as a safety measure to block and capture ammunition. Over the course of many decades, expended lead (bullets, shot, pellets, fragments) has built up in the berms, resulting in an environmental hazard. A contractor will be employed to mine the lead from the berms. An excavator and backhoe will be used to dismantle the berms and feed a generator-powered soil trommel, which will filter and separate the lead from the soil. After the lead is removed, the soil will be replaced and compacted to re-establish the berms at the same locations. The lead will be transported by a certified contractor to a lead recycling/disposal facility. Activities will comply with US Environmental Protection Agency Best Management Practices for Lead at Outdoor Shooting Ranges and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines and procedures. The shooting ranges cover an area of approximately three acres, with the area covered by the berms less than half an acre.
