Park City prepares for spring runoff

Local News

PARK CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – Residents of Park City are able to pick up sandbags in preparation for spring runoff and possible flooding.

“There’s not a whole lot you can do about it. Once it’s coming, it’s coming. Not a lot you can do about it, other than prepare with sandbags,” said Troy Bayley, Public Works Manager for Park City.

Bayley says crews monitor 27 different spots along streams and creeks in Park City — and twice per day, they remove debris to help prevent flooding from happening in those locations.

Up Guardsman Pass, snow is still very visible on the mountain. It’s a reality officials in and around Park City are aware of; so far, officials say, snowmelt has begun and appears to be moving along at a steady pace.

Still, there is the concern of a rapid warm-up that would melt all the snow — all at once.

Another message to the public is to be safe around cold, fast-moving water in the weeks and months ahead.

“Stay away, and be aware that water is very cold. It could sweep away animals, and people, very easily,” said Bailey.
