Pressurized Irrigation - South Bench of Salem

The City is continually trying to find ways to deal with water and issues related to pressurized irrigation. As the season is now warmer, water demand and usage have risen substantially. We are finding that neighborhoods along the south bench of Salem are experiencing fluctuation in water pressure and volume. These fluctuations are the result of a large number of users watering at the same time. In an effort to help resolve this issue, the City recommends and encourages users that live south of the Salem Canal (lower canal) to alternate watering schedules based on your house number.

The following suggestions could be taken immediately to increase the water pressure and volume issue you might be experiencing:

  • Houses beginning with even number addresses are encouraged to water in the evening hours.
  • Houses beginning with odd number addresses are encouraged to water in the early morning hours.

Please note that the current water regulations still apply. No watering between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. and NO watering Tuesday’s and Friday’s for residents. Just a reminder that on Tuesday and Friday the no watering restriction begins and ends at 12 midnight. The best way to help with this situation is to conserve water and not over water your yards.

GREEN WASTE
Information


For information on the Green Waste, click here.

We are sorry to inform you, but Salem City will NOT be doing a spring clean up and the green waste site has been closed.  Salem City can no longer subsidize the green waste.   You may go to the city office and pick up a voucher to take your green waste to the SUVSWD Transfer Station.  You will be allowed 2 vouchers for the year.   The voucher is good for a standard pick up truck load of green waste.  
Please read the information.

If you have placed green waste on the side of the road to be picked up, please pick it up and dispose of it properly.   Salem City is a beautiful city, we need your help to keep it that way.


Recycling Bins

Dumpsters are for the use of Salem City Residents only
Dumping outside of the dumpsters is considered littering
and will be strictly enforced by the Salem City
Police Department (Utah Code 76-10-2701).
Continued discarding of materials outside
of the containers instead of in them,
will result in Salem cancelling the program













Please help us so the dumpsters don't look like this.   They are dumped
three times a week, and each time it costs the city money.  
Remember, this is for Salem City Residents Only.
Read April's Newsletter for more information.


Deer Survey
Residents, Please take a moment to print off this survey (or pick one up at the city office) and return it to Salem City Office.  
We would like to have your feed back on the Deer Situation within Salem City Limits. 

DEER SURVEY

RESIDENTS: Salem City needs your help. Please clean out the gutters in front of your property so the debris does not clog up the storm drains.  If you have a storm drain grate in front of your house, please make sure there is no debris covering it.  Thank you for your help with this matter.
