Police say Providence plans to remove lead bullets and fragments from a police shooting range near the Scituate (SIH'-choo-iht) Reservoir.

Police Chief Col. Hugh Clements says the maintenance program will cost more than $1 million. He says Providence is talking with the city's Water Supply Board and state environmental regulators.

An engineering firm hired by the city says the cleanup includes upgrading the range, screening the soil to see which areas were affected by shooting range activity and removing used bullets.

The city has owned and operated the gun range for more than half a century. It hasn't been operational for more than a year.

The reservoir provides drinking water to 60 percent of the state's residents. Officials say tests indicate the water supply hasn't been contaminated.
