Flood PreparationFlood Prevention
Irrigation and flood seasons are quickly approaching.   Canals will be flowing as soon as April 1st.  Flooding is often caused by floating debris clogging culverts and trash grates.  If your home is adjacent to Big Cottonwood Creek, a canal, or other drainage ditch, we ask your help in making sure that the banks are free of debris to prevent flooding.  This is particularly important given the recent wind storms in the area.



Keep watching the website for updates and what you can do to prevent flooding.
