Abstract : The Dugway Proving Ground (DPG) located in Tooele Country, Utah, is an installation of the U.S. Army's Material Development and Readiness command (DARCOM). As stewards of approximately 840,909 acres (324,853 hectares) at DPG the U.S. Army has responsibility for the Management of any cultural resources located there. Approximately 220 sites are known to exist on DPG, but local geomorphology and cultural history suggest that additional cultural resources are likely to be found in undisturbed portions of the DPG. Those sites possessing physical integrity will have high research value. In compliance with Draft Army Regulation (AR 420.XX) and in consideration of future general disturbance activities, the following recommendations are made: (1) conduct a field survey of all undisturbed areas on the installation to identify unknown cultural resource locations, (2) establish monitoring program in those areas on the installation where construction and subsurface disturbances are planned, (3) evaluate and nominate known cultural properties for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), (4) take action to preserve properties eligible for inclusion in the NRHP. These recommendations, if implemented, together with historic architectural information would then serve as the basis for developing an installation Historic Preservation Plan.
