About Tooele

Tooele (pronounced /tuːˈɪlə/ or /tuːˈɛlə/) is a city in Tooele County in the U.S. state of Utah. It is part of the Salt Lake City, Utah Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 22,502 at the 2000 census. It is the county seat of Tooele County. The city is well known for Tooele Army Depot, privately-owned waste-disposal facilities west of Tooele Valley, and TOCDF, a government-owned chemical weapons incinerator south of Tooele Valley.

Geography

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 21.2 square miles (54.8 km²), of which, 21.1 square miles (54.8 km²) of it is land and 0.04 square miles (0.1 km²) of it (0.09%) is water.

Tooele is located on the western slopes of the Oquirrh Mountains in the Tooele Valley, the next valley west of the well-known Salt Lake Valley. Many popular camping and picnic areas surround the city.

The unusual name for the town is thought by some to have evolved from an old Ute Indian word for tumbleweed. This is only one of many unverified explanations, as the name's usage predated the introduction of the Russian thistle to the United States. Other explanations include that the name derives from a Native American chief, but controversy exists about whether such a chief lived. Others hypothesize that the name comes from "tu-wanda", the Goshute word for "bear", or from "tule", a Spanish word of Aztec origin, meaning bulrush.

Education

Tooele is located in the Tooele County School District and contains 7 elementary schools (Copper Canyon, East, Sterling R. Harris, Middle Canyon, Northlake, Overlake, and West), 2 junior high schools (Tooele and Clarke N. Johnsen) and 2 high schools (Tooele High School, and South Tooele High School). There are also Utah State University and Salt Lake Community College extensions.

Industry

Arts festival

Since 1985, the Tooele Arts Festival, an annual 3-day event since 1998 falling on the last weekend in June, has drawn visitors from around the country who are looking for one-of-a-kind artwork, including paintings, jewelry, ceramics, photographs, sculptures, and live musical entertainment. Children's playground equipment and entertainments are also provided. There is no admission fee for this festival, which is held at a city-owned park west of the city center. For the first several years of its existence the Festival was held near the end of May, but it seemed to coincide with late-spring cold spells, which were disastrous since all the Festival's activities are held out of doors. Due to this unpredictability, sponsors finally decided to move it into June, although this decision puts it in direct competition with the much larger Utah Arts Festival, held in Salt Lake City on the same dates.

County fair

Until 2000 the annual Tooele County Fair was held during the first week of August at the Tooele County Fairgrounds, inside Tooele City limits. After that date it has been held at the Deseret Peak Complex, located in the Tooele Valley midway between Tooele City and Grantsville City.
