Guam EPA to clean up GCC firing range

02 April 2013

Via GCC Press Release- Guam Community College has teamed up with the Guam Environmental Protection Agency to provide the island’s law enforcement entities with an environmentally safe firing range that will also protect the northern Guam lens aquifer.

GCC has provided free firing range services to local and federal law enforcement agencies for the past 25 years. In September 2012, the College secured a $5,000 grant from the National Rifle Association that funded an environmental assessment of the cost of lead reclamation and mitigation of the range. GCC has now entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Guam Environmental Protection Agency under which GEPA will provide $25,000 for cleanup and mitigation of the firing range.

Dr. Mary Okada, GCC President, and Eric Palacios, GEPA Administrator, will formalize the Memorandum of Understanding between their agencies on Thursday, April 4, at 9:30 A.M. at the GCC Firing Range.
