Well I don't know about the City of Dougway but that proving ground base is sure a dilly!!
Get a load of a little of what they do there www.dugway.army.mil...
Chemical Testing Overview
Dugway Proving Ground (DPG) is the Army’s first choice for test and evaluation (T&E) of chemical defense equipment and systems while providing
technical expertise to combat emerging chemical threats
DPG chemical test programs are divided in the following commodity areas: Individual Protection Equipment (IPE)
Collective Protection Equipment (ColPro)
Biological Testing Overview
DPG is at the forefront in support of key initiatives to protect Soldiers and civilians from biological threats. DPG’s Life Sciences Test Facility
(LSTF) is the only DoD facility certified to test developmental equipment and systems with aerosolized BSL-3 agents, such as viruses, bacteria, and
Biological testing capabilities include the following: Biological point and standoff detector T&E
Whole Systems Live Agent Testing (WSLAT)
Bioaerosol challenges with live agent and simulants up to BSL-3
Microbiological assays and high-capacity analysis
Production of bacteria, viruses, biological select agents and toxins
Munitions, Smoke & Obscurants Testing Overview
Munitions testing within the vast terrain at DPG dates back to World War II, and the test center continues to operate and maintain munitions test
sites, firing ranges, and bunkers to test and evaluate modern artillery munitions, mortars, mines, insensitive munitions, homemade explosives, and
improvised explosive devices.
Munitions testing capabilities include: Firing tests
Environmental tests in accordance with MIL-STD-810G
Munitions recovery and disposal
Non-destructive testing and x-ray
As military operations and obscurant technologies continue to change in the 21st century, DPG is primed to be the center of cutting-edge obscurant
Smoke and Obscurants testing capabilities include: Smoke and obscurant developmental tests, including environmental testing
Effects of smoke and battlefield interferents on chemical and biological detection systems
Effects of smoke and interferents on air filtration systems
Provide visual confirmation of airflow mapping tests and smoke/obscurant modeling

I hope there is no one living in that town.
Does not sound like it would be too healthy to raise a family, there, under those conditions. Yikes!
