Mayor's Message
From the May 2015 Newsletter

Mapleton Population Growth

     Mapleton City has averaged approximately 3% annual growth since 2000.  Assuming this growth rate stays constant, Mapleton is projected to have a population of approximately 11,000 by 2020 and 20,000 by 2050.  With several large projects potentially coming on line in the southern end of the City in the next few years, it is possible that the growth rate will be much higher than the current 3% average.  It is anticipated that at full build-out, that the City’s population will be somewhere between 23,000 to 29,000.   

     The state of Utah as a whole is also projected to experience significant growth.  By the year 2050, the population in the state will nearly double, with the majority of the growth occurring along the Wasatch Front.  With this in mind, Governor Herbert has asked Envision Utah to work with hundreds of experts to create a survey that will allow citizens to weigh in on the type of future they would prefer.  The survey results will lead to a vision for Utah’s future and will be used by policy makers, local governments, businesses, developers and the public in shaping how growth occurs.  We encourage you to visit http://envisionutah.org to take the survey and to make sure that the opinions of Mapleton City residents are included in the state-wide vision. 

Summer Water Conservation

     Utah is the 2nd driest state in the nation with one of the highest rates of water consumption. Living in the desert requires us to be responsible stewards of our precious natural resources. Mapleton is growing and all residents can help make water wise choices.

        On the Slow the Flow website you can Schedule a Free Water Check. A water check analyzes the efficiency of your automated sprinkler system. Trained workers will perform the water check at your home and provide you with a customized watering schedule. The tests that will be performed include soil type, grass root depth, sprinkler distribution uniformity and water pressure. The entire process will take approximately one hour. The water check program is a free service sponsored by your water provider:

http://slowtheflow.org/index.php/forms/free-water-check

        The Utah Water Conservation website has a webpage and a phone app that will instruct you on how much water and the frequency you need to water. This weekly lawn watering guide is based on the prior week's weather conditions. The goal is to apply the amount of water used by evaporation and plant processes in the previous week as precisely as possible. Microclimates in your yard may require an adjustment in your watering schedule. http://conservewater.utah.gov/guide.html

     When you water generally one irrigation cycle is equal to 0.5 inches of applied water, which is roughly equal to 20 minutes with pop-up spray heads and 40 minutes with impact rotor sprinklers. Most lawns and landscapes only need to be watered from 2 to 3 times a week at peak summer heat.

     We have seen in the news already this month that other cities are imposing watering restrictions county wide. They have recognized that they will run out of water if conservation efforts are not imposed now. Mapleton has not done so yet, but we are keeping a close eye on our wells, springs and irrigation pond. We have had early reports that our springs are already dropping in volume and that the wells have begun to drop as well. Please do what you can to conserve water in an effort to avoid mandated watering restrictions.
