What is that BOOM?

West Jordan residents have reported hearing booms and feeling rumblings over the last few weeks. We now know the culprit and know to expect more booms throughout the Summer and Fall. 

The Tooele Army Depot’s detonation season lasts from April 1st through October 31st. The detonations start in the morning and go through the afternoon. Officials post schedules and updates for the week every Monday on what residents can expect. 

The Army Depot conducts detonations on old, obsolete, and damaged explosives. This makes way for safer storage of explosives for soldiers.
