CAMP WILLIAMS, Utah (AP) -- The Utah National Guard has plans to identify and remove old munitions from properties once part of the Camp Williams.

The project is part of the Department of Defense's national Military Munitions Response Program aimed at eliminating any risk old munitions might pose to the public.

Guard Environmental Resource Manager Robert Price says six sites around Camp Williams have been identified for investigation. He says if munitions are found, the guard will safely remove or eliminate them after notifying the public.

A public meeting to discuss the project will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday at Fort Herriman Middle School in Riverton.

The guard also plans to establish a project advisory board comprised of government representatives, residents, landowners and regulatory agencies.
