TOOELE ARMY DEPOT SOUTH AREA (TEAD-S) – The TEAD-S will resume Open Detonation (OD) operations, beginning April 1, 2020.

These operations have been permitted to run annually from April 1 to October 31, weather permitting, approximately 11 a.m. through 6 p.m.

Open Detonation limits the handling of excess munitions and explosives, helping to protect local residents and employees from injury or damage due to explosive safety risks.

Safety is the most important consideration. Strict observance of proven OD procedures has resulted in an excellent safety record being earned by the personnel who have helped to destroy the many millions of pounds of obsolete or unstable munitions safely over decades at numerous Department of Defense (DOD) installations.

Tooele Army Depot is a United States Army post in Tooele County, Utah. It serves as a storage site for war reserve and training ammunition. The depot stores, issues, receives, renovates, modifies, maintains and demilitarizes conventional munitions. The TEAD-S is a US Army facility located approximately 15 miles south of Tooele, Utah.

For more information, residents can call the Tooele Army Depot detonation hotline at (435) 833-3300.
