2021 Fire Restriction Orders - Stage 2

Fire Restriction Order (Stage 2)

With the legal date of discharge of fireworks approaching, Wasatch Fire reiterates the hazardous situation we find ourselves in with the prolonged drought coupled with the elevated temperatures. Wasatch Fire, in light of the conditions that exist, and the need to mitigate potential catastrophic fires has implemented a FULL FIRE RESTRICTION throughout Wasatch County and included municipalities. These restrictions include all restrictions imposed by the State of Utah under the Stage 2 Fire Restrictions.

The penalty and sanction for any violation of this Resolution may carry a class B misdemeanor charge, with a fine of up to $1,000.00 per incident, plus surcharge and restitution, and six months in jail.

  1. Building, maintaining, attending, or using any fire, campfire, or stove fire*. This includes charcoal grills and barbecues, coal and wood burning stoves and tent stoves and includes use at homes and in developed camping and picnic grounds.
  2. Smoking, except within an enclosed vehicle, trailer or building, a developed recreation site or while stopped in an area that is paved or free from dry vegetation.
  3. Discharging or using any fireworks, tracer ammunition or other pyrotechnic devices including exploding targets.
  4. Cutting, welding, or grinding metal in areas of dry vegetation.
  5. Operating a motorcycle, chainsaw, ATV, or other small internal combustion engine without an approved and working spark arrestor.
    *Devices using pellets, pressurized liquid or gas (stoves, grills or lanterns) that include shutoff valves are permitted when used in an area at least three feet or more from flammable material such as grasses or pine needles.

Flood Hazards

Flood Hazards

There are areas of Wasatch County that are subject to periodic inundation which may result in loss of life and property, health hazards, disruptions of commerce and governmental services, extraordinary public expenditures for flood protection and relief, and impairment of the tax base, all of which adversely affect the public health, safety and general welfare.  Residents that live near river, canals, creeks, etc. may be in a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) as delineated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).  We use the Flood Hazard Map prepared by FEMA to assist in managing development within the designated flood plains and dispense information to the public based on the FEMA flood hazard maps.  Maps last updated in 2011.

When developing, it is always a good idea to check for flood hazards first.  This page will give you the tools to do that.

At the bottom of this page, PDF files of each panel are provided for download.

Flood Hazard Map

The Flood Mapping application has been discontinued.  The flood data is now included in the Base Map application under the water hazards layer.  This layer is not on by default, you will have to turn it on by using the layer list button.  This layer is scale dependent, as you zoom in on an area of interest, the water hazards layer will become active.   If you are interested in printing a map, use the print button that is part of the map application.
