    Read this today at work, thought some of you may enjoy it. If you read the comments at the bottom, a police officer (or someone who claims to be) says there are berms in place to stop the bullets before they enter the lake. -Rich

    Just to be clear, that's "North Chicago" a distinct and separate city in Illinois.

    Actually a very easy issue to get around ... they just need to go to lead free ammo like is already being used in very very large quantities at the FBI Academy for agent training.

    Simple & easy fix.

    lumper,

    did you see the part about the suit wanting them to clean up all the bullets that are already in th elake ($35 million.)

    I think they should force the plaintiff to prove its a hazard.

    The problem with the CWA is that there is a presumption of hazard from the discharge of a pollutant into Waters of the US. While lead migration has proven to be nil in neutral pH, it still doesn;t stop the huggers from pushing the issue!
