Be Runoff Ready With Flood Monitoring Reports

With the record snowfall in Utah, it's important to monitor the signs of potential flooding this spring. By staying informed and implementing appropriate preparedness measures, you can minimize the impact of potential flood events to your home and family.

For residents in Salt Lake County, key indicators show a high probability of flooding this spring. The County has extended its emergency flood declaration to June 13. For an up-to-date report on current snow levels, which creeks have yet to peak, and current reservoir capacities, visit the Salt Lake County Runoff Ready website.

View the May 23 Snowpack Update Video.

Videos will be revised periodically through the runoff season with new videos posted under the Services heading of the Runoff Ready website.

May Event: South Jordan Water Recycling

Join us for a tour of the Pure SoJo Pilot Facility at the South Valley Sewer District in Bluffdale. The City of South Jordan is using the pilot to test an innovative water recycling program.

This leading-edge pilot project is demonstrating advanced water purification technology that may be part of the answer to long-term water supply needs for the City of South Jordan. The water is pre-cleaned at the South Valley Sewer plant to an irrigation water standard before entering the advanced purification process at the demonstration facility. Don’t miss the chance to see this drinking water solution - the first of its kind in Utah!
