Welcome to Sierra Army Depot… our official website!

Sierra Army Depot is the U.S. Army’s Center for Industrial Technical Excellence (CITE) for all Petroleum and Water Distribution Systems (PAWS). Sierra is also the Army's premiere and largest facility dedicated to equipment retrograde, regeneration, reutilization, and redistribution. With 36,000 acres of high desert terrain, we provide distinct storage advantages with ample space, low humidity and low precipitation; excellent for the long-term storage of mechanized vehicles.

With our highly dedicated team of expert machinists, craftsmen, equipment operators and support personnel, Sierra Army Deport is a vital part to Army readiness. Our expertise allows us to receive, store, maintain, and ship Army material anywhere in the world, at any time.


Our focus is to support our military service members who defend our nation. Our mission has changed completely since the establishment of the installation in 1942. Sierra has transitioned to a depot that supports the Department of Defense and various Interagencies within our core competency capabilities - rapid deployment, power projection, and industrial operations.
