Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Dugway Proving Ground (UT) bio lab
Dugway aims to revive Cold War lab
Army says it needs extra space for crucial biotesting, but watchdogs warn of worldwide ramifications

TOOELE - A relic Cold War building, where Army scientists once secretly studied the effects of biochemical weapons, would be renovated and reopened under a proposal by officials from Dugway Proving Ground.

Under the proposal, the controversial Baker Lab would be rebuilt with as many as 25 new biological testing areas, including one that would be the largest of its kind for testing the effects of so-called Level-3 biological agents, such as an aerosol form of anthrax, on detection systems.

Dugway officials say post-Sept. 11, 2001, demands for testing of protective equipment and warning systems simply can't be met in their current lab space.
