Dugway Army Base On Lockdown


www.ksl.com

DUGWAY -- The U.S. Army's Dugway Proving Ground has been placed on lockdown as part of "an ongoing security operation," according to spokeswoman Paula Nicholson.

The gates to the facility were closed Wednesday evening, and workers normally scheduled to be off at 5:30 p.m. were not allowed to leave, while those coming into the area were not let in.

Not a lot of information about this yet. They have locked down the base with no one in or out. Last time it was under lockdown they announced that it was and why. I am hoping they tell us soon, before my mind starts thinking more about the Stand. I will update as soon as I hear more on our news.

The relevance is that the OP's thread concerns a 'chemical weapons' facility ,

this being 'above top secret ' and the topic being well within the confines of the subject matter deemed appropriate here...

Now we are aware that 'something' is going on and the base is on 'lockdown'

Even if it is Absolutely NOTHING and it ends up Cpt. Jeffrey brought a porno on-site... I applaud the OP for posting RELEVENT news that MAY or MAY NOT be potentially breaking news.

Wow sounds like a nice place



Dugway Proving Ground is a military testing facility located approximately 80 miles southwest of Salt Lake City. For several decades, Dugway has been the site of testing for various chemical and biological agents. From 1951 through 1969, hundreds, perhaps thousands of open-air tests using bacteria and viruses that cause disease in human, animals, and plants were conducted at Dugway... It is unknown how many people in the surrounding vicinity were also exposed to potentially harmful agents used in open-air tests at Dugway


Dugway Proving Ground


Dugway Sheep Kill" incident
In March 1968, 6,249 sheep died in Skull Valley, an area nearly thirty miles from Dugway's testing sites. When examined, the sheep were found to have been poisoned by an organophosphate chemical. The sickening of the sheep, known as the Dugway sheep incident, coincided with several open-air tests of the nerve agent VX at Dugway. Local attention focused on the Army, which initially denied that VX had caused the deaths, instead blaming the local use of organophosphate pesticides on crops. Necropsies conducted on the dead sheep later definitively identified the presence of VX. The Army never admitted liability, but did pay the ranchers for their losses

Thanks MavRck, I have done some calling around to our local news. As of yet they are still saying all they know is the base is on lockdown, and to keep watching there channel and website for any new updates. As soon as I find anything out I will be sure to post it.

Thanks everybody

Not just chemical, but biological as well. They tell the public here in Utah that they test defenses against chemical and biological weapons. They actually test ALL kinds of weapons and weaponry there.

I live in Utah, and know someone who worked at Dougway (years ago) and from past incidents he talked about, they rarely lockdown the base, and never alert the media if they do, I suspect that a concerned worker on the outside leaked news of the lockdown to the media, and the KSL report is a followup on that seems too scripted, as a general statement they would issue regardless of the situation.

Interesting, because the news of the lockdown itself was even reported.

Thanks for the post


Dugway...the new Groom Lake....Area 51?
www.abovetopsecret.com...


Dugway Proving Ground (DPG) is a US Army facility located approximately 85 miles (140 km) southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah in southern Tooele County and just north of Juab County. It encompasses 801,505 acres (3,243.576 km², or 1,252.352 sq mi) of the Great Salt Lake Desert, an area the size of the state of Rhode Island, and is surrounded on three sides by mountain ranges. It had a resident population of 2,016 persons as of the 2000 census, all of whom lived in the community of Dugway, Utah, at its extreme eastern end. The name "Dugway" comes from a technique to dig a trench along a hillside to keep a wagon from tipping.

That is something to worry about. Things there could kill the planet or at least all of us.

That's what I think. I wonder if they're concerned about possible bio hazard contamination - some research virus leaking out into the wild. Maybe their containment failed.

Supposedly Dugway does not have a level 4 facility.
