An Unexploded Ordinance

Throughout the wars of the 20th and 21st centuries several explosive weapons did not explode when they were employed. These bombs, bullets, shells, grenades, landmines, naval mines, and other things of the like still pose a risk of detonation, even many decades after they were used or discarded.

The Environmental Protection Agency released documents in 2002 that set the number of unexploded ordinance at 16,000 for domestic inactive military ranges within the United States pose an “imminent and substantial” public health risk. The environmental cleanup of this could cost the U.S. at least $14 billion. The ranges of land together comprise an area the size of Florida.

Environmental Risks

Beyond the pressing danger and risk of explosion, an unexploded ordinance also poses a threat to the environment. Environmental contamination can destroy natural areas and cause illness if it gets into the water supply. Some heavily-used military training areas have the presence of munitions-related chemicals that can enter the soil and groundwater.

Cape Cod

The Massachusetts Military Reservation in Cape Cod has faced this environmental and safety threat. Decades of artillery training have contaminated the drinking water for thousands of surrounding residents.
