About RLES

Range Lead Environmental Solutions, LLC, an operating company of Security Management Consultants, Inc., is a full-service outdoor firearms range management company.

RLES specializes in new range planning and construction.  Additionally, RLES consults on older range maintenance and environmental protection.  RLES can prepare and customize an Environmental Stewardship Plan (ESP) and submit it to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for certification.

A certified ESP insulates the range owner from lawsuits that can result in the closing of a range.  Certification also ensures that approved methods of lead contamination to surrounding water and ground water are limited.  It is a two-pronged approach to limit your liability and to protect the environment.

RLES can outline the best practices for controlling soil chemistry, drainage of run-off water in contact with expended lead ammunition and ultimately remove expended lead rounds from range berms.

RLES employs former FBI and Secret Service firearms instructors with decades of experience with military and law enforcement ranges.  Their goal is to ensure that a client's range remains open for training.

RLES offers complete services in the maintenance and storage of all records associated with a client's range.  These include statistics such as total number of rounds fired, semi-annual soil testing, the addition of chemicals, and the conducting of PH tests..  Furthermore, our consultants can advise a client as to when bullet removal should commence to remain in compliance with government standards.

How to Avoid Costly Litigation

Lawsuits resulting in the closing of ranges are filed under the Clean Water Act (CWA) and the Resource Conservation and Reclamation Act (RCRA).  Expended bullet lead at a a firing range site has the potential for leaching into the ground water under the range and can trigger costly environmental lawsuits.  Therefore, a certified Environment Stewardship Plan is a requirement for continued operation of the range.  Lawsuits brought by environmental groups are on the rise and could cost a municipality or government agency significant taxpayer dollars to litigate in court.
