Dugway's size unclear

Also, officials say growth needed to keep nosy away

Pentagon inspectors are not amused that one Army database says Utah's
vast Dugway Proving Ground has 1,192 square miles of test and training
ranges within its Rhode Island-size borders, while a different database
says it has only 456.

Deseret Morning News graphicThat is a difference of 736 square miles of
maybe-it-exists, maybe-it-doesn't range land - about 11 times as big as
Washington, D.C.

The Army Audit Agency found similar big differences at many ranges nationally.

The Deseret Morning News obtained the report through a Freedom of
Information Act request.
