History

Davis County was created by the territorial legislature in 1852, with Farmington designated as its county seat, because of its geographic location midway between boundaries at the Weber River on the north and the Jordan River on the south. During its first 50 years, Davis County grew slowly. With the advent of the Utah Central Railroad in 1870, a transition to mechanized agriculture and a surge of commerce, banking, improved roads, new water systems, and electrification of homes began. However, by 1940, the population was barely 16,000. 1852 was a leap year starting on Thursday (see link for calendar). ... Weber River, c. ...

With the establishment of Hill Air Force Base in northern Davis County, there was a surge of civilian employment after World War II. The county doubled in population between 1940 and 1950, and doubled again between 1950 and 1960 as part of the nationwide suburb boom that was occurring at the time. By 1990 there were 188,000 residents, and in 2000, there were 239,000. By 2030, the county is expected to have a population of about 360,000.

Geography

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 1,641 km² (634 sq mi). 789 km² (304 sq mi) of it is land and 853 km² (329 sq mi) of it (51.95%) is water.

The county lies generally between the Great Salt Lake on the west and the Wasatch Range on the east, which rises to a height of 9,707 ft (2,959 m) in the county at Thurston Peak. The Great Salt Lake in the west, which is surrounded by marshland and mudflats, lies at an average elevation of approximately 4,200 ft (1,280 m), varying depending on the water level, which can lead to drastic changes in the lake size due to its shallowness. The lake includes Antelope Island, which is the largest island in the lake. The entire island is a state park, designated to protect natural scenery and especially wildlife on the island, which includes bighorn sheep, pronghorn antelope, and a bison herd. The narrow, populated portion that lies between the Great Salt Lake and the Wasatch Range is a portion of the Wasatch Front, which is very narrow at this point, complicating north-south transportation in the county. Great Salt Lake, located in the northern part of the U.S. state of Utah, is the largest salt lake in the Western Hemisphere,[1] the fourth-largest terminal lake in the world,[2] and the 33rd largest lake on Earth. ...

It should be noted that Davis County shares land borders with only Salt Lake, Morgan and Weber counties; all other borders are water.

Davis County lies in a semiarid climate zone. Snow is frequent during winter, with up to 90 in (230 cm) annually on high bench areas in the east and at least 55 in (140 cm) on the valley floor. Annual precipitation averages between 18 and 25 in (450 to 650 mm) in the county, with sping being the wettest season and summer the driest. Summers are hot, with several days each year averaging above 95°F (35°C). However, the humidity is low, making for comparatively comfortable temperatures. In winter, temperatures sometimes drop below 0°F (-18°C), but rarely for extended periods of time. Compared to Salt Lake County to the south, the weather in Davis County is extreme. Lake-effect snows hit the county harder, and even in non-lake-effect storms, the lack of a rain shadow in Davis County (much of Salt Lake County lies in the rain shadow of the Oquirrh Mountains) means that storms hit harder here. In addition, canyon winds from the east hit this county very hard, and wind gusts above 100mph have been reported. This occurs when a powerful high pressure system situates itself over Wyoming, and are a common local occurrence.[1] The steppe of Western Kazakhstan in early spring In physical geography, steppe (from Slavic step) is a plain without trees (apart from those near rivers and lakes); it is similar to a prairie, although a prairie is generally reckoned as being dominated by tall grasses, while short grasses are said...

Transportation

The most important road in the county is Interstate 15, which runs north-south through the center of the county. U.S. 89 enters parallel to I-15 from Salt Lake County to the south and runs north through North Salt Lake and Bountiful as a city road before merging with I-15. It re-emerges again in Farmington near the Lagoon Amusement Park, heading along the eastern benches on the slopes of the Wasatch Range, entering Weber County near South Weber. US 89 will eventually be upgraded to a freeway through eastern Layton north to its interchange with Interstate 84 near the Weber County border. Due to the narrowness of the Wasatch Front through the county, congestion is a major problem, especially since many people within the county commute south into Salt Lake County.

To relieve congestion in the county, the Legacy Parkway portion of the Legacy Highway began construction in March 2006. Construction began near the US 89/I-15 interchange in Farmington in 2004, but was soon halted due to a lawsuit filed by environmentalists over the completeness of the environmental impact statement. Environmentalists were concerned that the road would impact marshlands along the eastern edge of the Great Salt Lake. A settlement was finally reached in November 2005 and the final injunction was lifted in February 2006. This portion of the Legacy Highway will run southward from the US 89/I-15 interchange in Farmington, along the west end of the valley, and connecting into Interstate 215 near the border with Salt Lake County.
