Live Fire Proposal Action
GLAHNF Joins Other Groups throughout the Region Expressing Concern About the Coast Guard Live Fire Proposal on the Great Lakes
Our clean drinking water, ability to fish and freedom to enjoy the Great Lakes – a resource for all of us to use and protect – are at risk from the United States Coast Guard Proposal to establish 34 live fire practice zones on the Great Lakes. GLAHNF has joined other groups in comments to the U.S. Coast Guard on the proposal.
The comments address:
• Public access restrictions during live fire exercises and potential alternatives;
• Long-term negative and unknown impacts of lead bullets on water quality; and
• The need for a detailed environmental assessment that considers a full spectrum of impacts.
