Description Lead from ammunition is one of the many sources of this metal covered in the draft Lead Chemical Action Plan (CAP). The CAP is a planning tool to guide statewide efforts to reduce lead exposures in the environment. The goal is to lower the amount of lead people are exposed to.

The Washington Department of Ecology is committed to reducing toxic threats. The chemical action plan (CAP) is one of the tools used to carry out this priority work. CAPs deal with substances considered “the worst of the worst” for human health and the environment. Each CAP looks at the sources of exposure from a toxic substance and recommends ways to reduce that threat. Earlier CAPs have dealt with mercury and PBDE flame retardants.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
