Magrath Trail Headgate Bridge Update

Construction of the bridging structure at the Magrath National Historic Site head-gates is continuing this week. The three supporting I-beams are now in place, but it is expected that the bridge and railing assembly will be continuing throughout the rest of this week. As a result, this segment of the Magrath Trail will remain closed to the public until this work site and related construction works are completed and the contractor’s barriers are removed.

Magrath Fire

Magrath experienced an uncharacteristic house fire today at 104 West 2 Ave North. The Town’s fire department was quick to respond and as of 4:30 pm the flames were abating and did not appear to be spreading. The adjacent structures appeared to be safe and intact at that time.


The section of the Magrath Trail surrounding the head-gates will be closed this week for some long-anticipated scheduled construction. Please obey all signs and stay away from this construction area. This is important from public safety as well as a workplace safety perspectives.

Irrigation Notice - July 31, 2018

Given the recent excessive heat and the desire of everyone to water at the same time, we are again asking residents this summer to implement an odd and even day watering schedule depending on your house number so there is sufficient water pressure for everyone.  i.e. if your house number is even you water on even numbered days.  Please note that this will not affect those lands south of the creek (fish pond, cemetery area) as they are on a separate irrigation line.
