Firearms qualification will be audible from the site Oct. 16
Those on the Argonne site may hear loud popping sounds from the south on Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2018, as U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) employees conduct firearms qualification. In conjunction with the Illinois Department of Agriculture, USDA employees will use a gun range on the extreme south end of the Argonne site from approximately 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Argonne Security and the Fire Department have been notified, and a safety plan is in place that includes warning signs and road barricades.
Depending on the wind conditions, this firearms training will probably be louder than the occasional popping coming from the Lemont Police Department firearms range across the Des Plaines River south of the site.
