Back to School Reminders

Summer is flying by and the 2017-2018 school year begins soon. That means we all need to be extra mindful of school children walking to school and waiting at bus stops. Please drive safely and obey legal speed limits within school zones throughout the city. Fines are higher for speeding in school zones and our chil-dren’s safety should always come first. Also remember there is no parking within 20’ of crosswalks and intersections, and please be aware and abide by the direction of the school crossing guards as they help children cross roadways safely.

Let’s all make a special effort to slow down, watch more closely for children going to and from school, and obey school zone traffic laws. We can all do our part to help the school year get off to a safe start!

FALL CEMETERY CLEAN UP

Fall cleanup in the City Cemetery will begin Monday November 6, 2017—the first Monday in November.Please make sure all flowers, decorations, shepherd hooks and other items are removed from the cemetery before Nov. 6th.

Recycling Bins Removed

The yellow recycling bins that have been available at Canyon View Park and on Lava Flow Drive have been permanently removed; there are still recycling bins at the Gubler Park. The bins, provided by Washington County Solid Waste, were removed from the other locations due to misuse. Unfortunately, some were leaving large items such as furniture and appliances never intended for drop off at the recycling bins and also leaving trash on the ground when bins were full allowing trash to blow into neighboring properties. We have received numerous complaints about this. If this becomes a problem at
Gubler Park those bins will also be removed. We hope that won’t happen and remind those who use the bins to only dispose of recyclable materials as designated on the yellow bins. Please do not leave trash on the ground once bins are full, wait till they are emptied and ready for use. If you have large items to dispose of please call Republic Services at 628-2821 to schedule a special pick up or take the items to the County Landfill. Watch for quarterly clean up dumpsters that are scheduled in March, June, September and December.

A cross connection is defined as any actual or potential connection between a potable water system and any other source or system through which it is possible to introduce into the public drinking water system any used water, industrial fluid, gas or substance other than the intended potable water. Cross connections and backflow incidences in the state of Utah have resulted in dangerous highly contaminated water unexpectedly entering public drinking water systems. Irrigation water, oil, toxic boiler compounds, sewage, pesticides and other extremely dangerous contaminants have found their way into Utah public drinking water systems due to cross connections.

With residential access to pressurized irrigation in the valley comes a risk of homeowners cross connecting the irrigation system with the culinary water system. If done improperly the result could contaminate the entire drinking water system. Please have an inspection done by the Santa Clara Field Canal Company before doing so. Backflow prevention assemblies provide protection against contamination or pollution of the public drinking water system. A backflow incident can seriously affect the quality and safety of our drinking water system. Backflow is the reverse flow of contaminated water or other substances from a water users system back into the public drinking water system. Backflow can occur if your plumbing system is physically connected to any source of contamination or pollution as simple as landscape sprinklers, hose attachments for utility sinks and garden hoses.

For questions or concerns please contact the Public Works Department at 435-656-4690.
