    – The general purposes and objectives for which this corporation is organized are to provide community services and facilities by obtaining title to all common areas and facilities including but not limited to recreational facilities and other areas which are to be obtained for the sole use and enjoyment of the land owners.  In addition, the corporation could be required to provide for the maintenance of streets, paths, perimeter fencing, common areas, and recreational facilities* obtained for the sole use and enjoyment of the land owners of residential lots situated within that certain real property described and known as Silver Springs [East] Subdivisions and all subsequent lots and properties which are annexed to the Silver Springs [East] Subdivisions, located in Summit County, State of Utah. –Articles of Incorporation – May 8, 1979 –  Entry 83813

    *Between 1972 and 1977 the 1948 Federal Water Pollution Control Act was significantly reorganized and expanded then renamed the “Clean Water Act”.  After the primary driver for the proliferation of single family homeowners’ associations in the U.S., that being the value to the developers and the municipalities, the secondary driver, the Clean Water Act which required all new real estate developments to detain storm water so that flow to adjoining properties was no greater than the pre-development runoff.  This law required nearly all residential developments to construct drainage channels, detention or retention areas to hold excess storm water and run-off until it could be released at the pre-development flow level.  Since these detention areas serve multiple residences they are almost always designated as “common” areas. Real estate developers therefore, established homeowner associations to maintain these federally mandated common areas, thereby ensuring an entity, rather than an individual or the local municipality, to have maintenance responsibility.  With a homeowner association in place, the developers expanded their scope to provide other requirements and amenities that they believed would help them sell lots and houses.   This federal law had a significant influence on the inclusion of several retention ponds aka the Silver Willow “lakes” within the master plan of Silver Springs East aka Silver Springs Master Association.
