UNLV Study Area

The former Nellis Small Arms Range Annex is located in Clark County, Nevada. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is investigating and monitoring the former range through the Formerly Used Defense Sites, or FUDS, Program for munitions and explosive hazards that may remain from previous military training activities. This page provides information on the University of Nevada - Las Vegas (UNLV) Study Area, which is part of the former Nellis Small Arms Range Annex FUDS.

The UNLV Study area encompasses 2,014 acres within city limits of North Las Vegas, which is currently undeveloped and managed by the Bureau of Land Management. In 2015, UNLV was granted federal land under the Carl Levin and Howard P. “Buck” McKeon National Defense Authorization Act and has made plans to develop this portion of the former Nellis Small Arms Range. Before proceeding, the university has requested that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers complete its munitions investigation and, if necessary, response action at the site.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is conducting a Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study on the UNLV Study Area to identify the type and extent of munitions that may remain on the property. Once the investigation is complete, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will identity alternatives for remediating the site.
