THE TOWN NEEDS YOUR HELP CONTROL TUMBLEWEEDS

Mow before the plant goes to seed.

Compost or transport while it is
still green, otherwise you will
spread more seeds.

Each plant is capable of
dispersing 250,000 seeds.

Burn when plant is dry. Check our pages on the burn window and fire safety.

Plant competitive species of plants. Tumbleweeds don’t like lawns or
well-irrigated gardens.


Don't let the weeds pile up against fences or in ditches.

THE DEBUT of THE BEAST
The New Engine 39

The Castle Valley Fire Department rolled out its new engine in the
2016 Gourd Festival parade. When the Beast,
a military 5 ton truck, became surplus, it came to the State of Utah,
who then gave it to Castle Valley.
Ron Mengel was essential in re-engineering the vehicle,
converting it into a first class brush truck for wild land fires.
It now carries 1800 gallons of water. With two hose reels and
a water canon on the front, four people - plus the driver -
can fight fire from all sides. With large clearance the Beast
can go practically anywhere and ford rivers.

It is the best brush truck the fire department has ever had.

The Town owes Ron a huge vote of thanks for the excellent design
and the countless hours he spent on the project.
