Invasive Russian Olive and Tamarisks

The Utah Division of Forestry, Fire, and State Land has obtained a grant to remove invasive Russian Olive and Tamarisks from Rockville in 2021.  This is your opportunity to rid yourself of these invasive species at no cost to you!

This treatment is grant-funded, at no cost to the landowner (if they fall within the project boundary), and while funds are available one re-treatment will be conducted the following year. The treatment will be cutting Tamarisk and Russian Olive and spraying the stumps with herbicide immediately after to limit re-sprouting.  Free landowner education is available as well.

To see if your property is eligible, please contact Carrie Howard, the Southwest Area Forester, at (435) 218-4629
or email:
carrielhoward@utah.gov

Harmful algal blooms (HABs) develop when naturally occurring cyanobacteria in the water grow out of control and produce toxic or harmful effects on people, fish and birds. The human illnesses caused by HABs, though rare, can be debilitating or even fatal.

Ranging from microscopic, single-celled organisms to large seaweeds, algae are simple plants that form the base of food webs. Sometimes, however, their roles are more sinister. Under the right conditions, algae may grow out of control — and a few of these “blooms” produce toxins that can kill fish, mammals and birds, and may cause human illness or even death in extreme cases.

How To Stay Safe

  • Do not swallow water when swimming.
  • Wash hands with clean water before eating or preparing food.
  • Clean fish well and discard the guts.
  • Keep animals away.
  • Recognize the signs of a bloom, and when in doubt, stay out.

UTAH GEOLOGICAL SURVEY

The Utah Geological Survey, (a division of the Utah Department of Natural Resources), has conducted an extensive investigation of the tragic rockfall that occurred in Rockville December 2009. The detailed report (and map) that identifies and addresses rockfall hazard areas in Rockville has been published and is available to Rockville residents and property owners electronically upon request at the Town Office.

Please note that the report and map gives an overall view of potential rockfall hazard areas and is not meant as a property or site-specific geologic study.

Contact Town Clerk Vicki S. Bell at (435) 772-0992 or by email at rockville@rockvilleutah.org if you would like the electronic report emailed to you. Hard copies will be made available for a fee of $10 by signing up at the Town Office. A hard copy is also available for review in the Town Office and the Springdale Library.
