Welcome to the Town of Manila, Utah
Follow Us on FaceBook
With only a three hour drive from the hustle and bustle of Salt Lake City, Manila exists as a small, quiet community offering a completely unique experience. The valley opens wide at your feet and the pollution free evening skies are filled with stars that seem almost within reach. In winter, the valley is surrounded by snow laden mountains, providing breath taking views. A multitude of wild animals including deer, antelope, rabbit, fox, bobcat, and the occasional mountain lion, share Manila with the local population. Whatever you desire in outdoor adventure, you are bound to find it here with cedar, juniper, aspen and pine laden mountains rising to the south, and scenic desert formations rising to the north. Tucked comfortably against the hillsides, Manila rests on a valley which quietly overlooks the immense beauty of the Flaming Gorge Reservoir.
The Mayor and Council members of Manila welcome you to our town and we invite you to stay as long as you would like, hoping your visit is filled with lasting memories... Read more about our wonderful community...

Nov. 2013: Cedar Hollow Lateral Piping Project Underway
The Sheep Creek Irrigation Company has begun construction on a project to pipe its Cedar Hollow Lateral canal. The project will install approximately five miles of irrigation pipe in the existing open canal channel. A portion of the canal to be piped runs through the Town of Manila. The pipe will be buried within the same alignment and right-of-way as the existing open canal and construction activities will be completed within the irrigation company’s easement.
Construction Schedule & Impacts:
- Johansen Construction, the construction contractor, plans to employ two crews for the project.
- Increased truck and construction equipment traffic should be expected on local streets.
- Temporary street and residential driveway closures are possible to accommodate pipe installation through some areas. The contractor will coordinate potential property impacts with individual property owners.
- Construction noise and dust are possible during daytime hours.
- No utility service interruptions are planned, however, if they become necessary the contractor will provide advance notice to affected residents.
- Pipeline installation involves open trenches and heavy construction equipment. To maintain public safety in the work zone, residents are asked to avoid open trenches and take appropriate safety measures with children.
- Substantial project completion is expected by early May 2014.
Anticipated Project Benefits Include:
- The elimination of open water which can be a safety hazard.
- A significant reduction in maintenance activities required by the canal company (cleaning, vegetation and debris removal within the canal easement, monitoring, etc.).
- A reduction in weeds which grow as a result of the canal.
- Reduced flooding potential from irrigation water overtopping the canal banks.
- Water conservation as less irrigation water will be lost to evaporation and seepage.
- Salinity control as piping the canal will reduce the mobilization and transport of dissolved salts in the soil that result from ditch seepage.
Residents with questions or concerns during construction may contact Andy Neff with The Langdon Group at 801-419-9554 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Volunteer with HistoriCorps to Save the Ute Mountain Lookout Tower!
Ute Mountain Lookout Tower, the first and the last standing fire tower with living quarters above ground in Utah, offers a panoramic view of the picturesque Uinta Mountain Range. Today it stands as a monument to the early years of fire prevention and detection of the Forest Service, an important part of our cultural heritage. Ute Tower was a tourist attraction until its closing in September of 2008 due to decay in the tower and legs and stairway. Volunteers will learn about the early years of fighting forest fires while enjoying spectacular views of the Uinta Mountains and the satisfaction of preserving a piece of history. Join us for a week-long session to re-roof the cab, replace deteriorated timbers, rehabilitate the windows, and scrape and paint all exterior surfaces. Dates: Session 1: Aug. 26th-30th; Session 2: Sept. 3rd-6th; Session 3: Sept 9th-13th; Session 4: Sept 16th-20th. Read more and register here: http://historicorps.org/ute-mountain-lookout-tower/.
