The investigative team at KING 5 is reporting that old military ammunition, some dating back to World War II and earlier, has been found at the bottom of Smith Cove. In April, a Port of Seattle Police dive team found empty shell casings in the waters around Pier 91. In September, divers brought up training rounds and projectiles. While most did not contain explosives, KING reports a few had live rounds with high explosive material and that some live munitions were brought to the surface when a cruise ship was docked above.
