About

Dugway Proving Ground ( DPG ) is a U.S. Army facility established in 1942 to
test biological and chemical weapons, located about 85 miles (140km) southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah and 13 miles south of the 2,624sq mi Utah Test and Training Range forming the largest overland special use airspace in the United States. In 1968 more than 6,000 sheep were killed in the Dugway sheep incident. In 2015 it was revealed that the Dugway lab had inadvertently shipped live anthrax spores. Dugway mission is to test United States and Allied biological and chemical weapon defense systems in a secure and isolated environment. DPG also serves as a facility for US Army Reserve and US National Guard maneuver training, and US Air Force flight tests—mostly from nearby Hill Air Force Base in Clearfield. DPG is controlled by the United States Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC). The area has also been used by Army special forces for training in preparation for deployments to the War in Afghanistan.
