(Hill Air Force Base-AP) -- A federal study has concluded that the chemical plumes from Hill Air Force Base pose no threat to public health.

The assessment of plumes in Sunset, Clinton, Roy, Layton, Riverdale and South Weber concluded that exposure to the contaminants through groundwater, soil, indoor air, surface water or fruits and vegetables does not pose a health hazard.

The report by the U-S Department of Health's Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry was released yesterday.
