Mud, rocks washed onto Park City roads during storms
September 17, 2013
The Park City Police Department last week responded to a series of complaints about debris on roads during the rainstorms and officers also closely monitored streams inside the city like Poison Creek.
The area endured a rare extended series of storms last week, prompting concerns by the police, other emergency officials and the Public Works Department.
Some of the storm-related entries in public police logs last week included:
Hugh Daniels, who manages City Hall’s emergency programs, said the rain did not cause significant problems inside Park City. Daniels said the rocks that were washed onto roads were small ones.
"It was all minor, but we kept an eye on it," Daniels said, adding, "It was mud, water on the roadways."
