FORT CARSON — Those living in the communities surrounding Fort Carson should expect more noise and dust from artillery training starting Wednesday.

The field artillery training exercises are expected to last through Friday, and will feature "large caliber training with live munitions" at different training sites on post. The Army also said it "strive(s) to to balance our training requirements with respecting our neighboring communities."

The Army said in June that artillery training will be happening throughout the summer on the Mountain Post, causing some neighbors to complain about the noise to News5 earlier this year.

Noise complaints can be submitted to the Fort Carson Public Affairs Office at (719) 526-9849.
