Suburban golf club was constructed on a former firing range. Site soil mainly impacted with handgun and rifle rounds. During course construction, urban fill and firing range soils were introduced to native site soils for ground leveling and physical improvement.

For reclamation, soils were not screened to remove bullets or urban fill inclusions. Untreated soil composite sample “Bulk 2” contained 37,100 mg/kg of total lead leaching at 1,900 mg/L. A dosage rate of 4% EnviroMag Coarse reduced lead leachability to 0.47 mg/L (TCLP standard of 5.0 mg/L). Soil was disposed off-site in a Subtitle D landfill.
