Tyndall AFB, Fla:

TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. - In coordination with Tyndall Elementary School and the Bay District School Superintendent’s office, notification letters have been mailed to parents, faculty and staff announcing a soil cleanup project scheduled to begin July 6.

Tyndall Elementary School was constructed on the site of a WWII aerial gunnery school training range. The training at this range involved using turret-mounted machine guns reconfigured to fire 12-gauge shotgun shells at clay targets thrown from fixed towers. Both the lead shot and the remnants of clay pigeon targets are now considered to be potentially hazardous.
