Shooting RangeShooting Range Cleaning and Maintenance

Federal, State and Local Regulatory Departments have begun heavily enforcing the standards necessary for Shooting Range Owners to follow in regards to compliance with lead regulations. Many Range Owners have been issued fines and been put out of business due to non­compliance of these regulations. Due to this, EWD and HCI Environmental & Engineering Service has created a Shooting Range Cleaning and Maintenance Division. EWD and HCI currently services multiple clients in both the public and private sector.

EWD staffs a complete Regulatory Compliance Department that is very knowledgeable in regards to the agencies that regulate the shooting range industry. EWD is a fully licensed Hazardous Waste Transporter and HCI a Class A ­ General Contractor with a Hazardous Substances Removal Certification issued by the California Contractors State License Board. In addition, EWD and HCI carries $12,000,000.00 in liability insurance.

In an effort to alleviate costly annual backstop clean­ups and potential liabilities regarding air contaminated with lead, EWD and HCI will provide a budgeted maintenance program.
