AbstractLead (Pb) and arsenic (As) are trace elements of environmental concern due to their adverse impacts on humans and animals. The objective of this study was to determine the extent of Pb and As contamination in soils at a target shooting facility located in central Florida. This facility has been in operation for 14 yr and includes a fixed-target rifle range and a moving-target shotgun range. Soil samples were collected from both surface (0-10 cm) and profile (depths of 0-10, 11-30, 31-50, 51-100, 181-200 cm) from this site. Concentrations of Pb, As, P, Fe, and Al were determined using USEPA Method 3051a (microwave, HNO3/HCl = 3:1, v/v). Total Pb in surface soils varied from 330 to 17 850 mg Pb kg(-1), with the greatest concentration in the middle of the backstop berm at the rifle range. Total As in surface soils varied from 0.50 to 107 mg As kg(-1) with the greatest concentration found on the central transect at 30 m from the shooting stand at the shotgun range. Elevated soil pH levels were associated with elevated soil Pb concentration. A Toxicity Characterization Leaching Procedure (TCLP) test indicated that Pb in all surface soils from the rifle range exceeded the 5 mg Pb L-1 critical level of federal regulation for solid wastes and hazardous wastes provided by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and would be characterized as hazardous waste.
