In order to assist residents in preparing for anticipated floods, volunteers were busy Friday morning at the Flood Control Sandbag Storage in Midvale filling sandbags.
Around the Wasatch Front, the full bags will be placed along creeks and streams that might get overflowed if the snow melts too soon. The county anticipates a significant amount of snow runoff, according to Scott Baird, director of public works for Salt Lake County.
Sandbags will help to protect streams and maintain water in the creeks, so we want to be ready with them, he says. To fill 12,000 sandbags is the objective.
Ted Wilson, a former mayor of Salt Lake City, was in charge during a major flood in 1983. He stresses the need for planning.
Here we have some news of lake county given below:
- By 2024, Salt Lake County Will No Longer Be Connected With The Unified Police Department
- Although The Calumet Region Unemployment Rate Is On The Rise, Lake County Drops To Fifth Place

The majority of the religious leaders in the area encouraged people to assist with the sandbagging, and by high noon, we had 10,000 people there, according to Wilson. “I really hope we don’t have to do that again.”
The current Salt Lake County Mayor Jenny Wilson said the county is keeping a careful check on Utah’s snowpack as it begins to melt. We have learned a lot since 1983, so it goes without saying that we are keeping an eye on the snowpack in the Wasatch Mountains. “A quick rise in temperature is our main worry.”
