CAMP WILLIAMS, Utah — The Utah National Guard will conduct a live-fire artillery exercise at Camp Williams Wednesday.

In order to maintain safety measures, the live-fire comes after the recent replacement of chrome gun tubes on 12 Paladin howitzers, according to a press release by the Utah National Guard.

After the old tubes are disposed, the new tubes must be tested for safety, according to the press release.

The testing will start at 8 a.m. and end at 5 p.m., but due to the nature of test firing, the testing will happen sporadically throughout the day.

Residents of Bluffdale, Riverton, Herriman, Eagle Mountain, Saratoga Springs and Lehi will be the most affected, the Utah National Guard said.

Artillery exercises are not open to the public.
