    On August 19, 2013, EPA reviewed the completion of the shot curtain and the status of lead shot in the Santa Ana River and Santa Ana River Wolly Star Preserve. Based on this review, including EPA’s observations that salvage activities have reduced the concentration of lead shot, EPA believes that there no longer is a federal interest in addressing existing lead contamination from the Redlands Shooting Park (“RSP”). It is EPA’s understanding that the San Bernardino County Fire Department, the California Department of Toxic Substance Control and the California Regional Water Control Board concur that no further action is currently required to address existing lead shot in the Santa Ana River.

    Yippie! In the clear!

    Congratulations on a project well conceived and implemented.

    Redlands is the best facility in Southern California.

    Thanks to Terry, Allison, and all those that were involved.

    Let's not forget to give credit to Ian for helping Terry install the curtains.

    Congratulations, Redlands! Wonderful news. My husband and I shot against the new curtain recently and loved it. We plan on joining Tri County this year and hope to make many more visits to your great facility.

    Sam,

    Every place has a wind load rating that the engineers can design to. Redlands is very low at 55 mph and that is what this is designed for at a 90 degree load. Fortunately, when the wind does blow like that it blows more parallel to the curtain. However, a curtain can be permanently installed in higher rated areas or for smaller clubs who wouldn't want to leave it up over winter, during storms or the days that they are closed, they can be installed to be raised and lowered like the nets behind football goalposts.

    As you can see from the shot that comes off the curtain, it can be collected the day it is shot, sold back to club members as reclaimed and shot again the next week.

    Because steel shot is more expensive than lead, the economics of being able to recover the shot and sell it is even better for steel than lead. Plus, steel would deform less and the curtains will last longer because of the lower energy delivered by steel compared to lead.
