Description: Tooele Army Depot is a United States Army post located in Tooele County, Utah. It originally opened in 1942 during the early phase of U.S. involvment in World War II. It is primarily operated by members of the U.S. Army's Ordnance Corps.

The site has long served as a repository for stockpiles of biological and chemical weapons. As the United States has disclaimed use of such weapons, the post's primary responsibilites are now the safeguarding of the remaining inventory and planning for and carrying out its destruction, largely through the use of on-site incineration facilities, the use of which has been decried by some area residents and many environmentalists.

In the past, accidental discharges of some chemical agents, including VX nerve gas, have been linked to the death of large numbers of sheep grazing nearby lands, which has served to alert area residents and others to the potential lethality of the weapon stockpile to humans. The workforce at the post is now primarily composed of civilians with a limited number of active duty Army personnel.
