SOC Team of Experts Remove Harmful Munitions from Receding U.S. Lake Shore

SOC worked with the Department of Defense to remove Material Potentially Presenting Explosive Hazard (MPPEH) and Munitions and Explosives of Concern (MEC). Climate change caused a U.S. lake shoreline to recede nearly ten miles and drop 150 feet in the past 100 years, uncovering the risk of potentially harmful contaminates in a formerly active range used by the military for ordnance testing. An estimated 4,000 leftover visible munitions remained on this shoreline from past military function testing - predominately in the form of rocket bodies. Applying SOC’s strong standards of safety and environmentally responsible disposal processes in cleanup and discovery of materials, the project included ongoing research and assessments of warhead/motor conditions from samplings of rockets in various locations.
