Areas Under Flood Watch Seeing Some Impact From Overnight Rain

SPRING LAKE, Utah – KSL TV is tracking the impact of Tuesday night’s rain in Utah County.

Sgt. Spencer Cannon with the Utah County Sheriff’s Office tweeted that there was debris flow in Spring Lake near 3620 West and 12680 South.

He said the flow split around one home, leaving mud around it, but there was no apparent damage.

The owner reportedly stayed put by choice, while the occupants of two nearby homes chose to evacuate.

Cannon said those homes also have no apparent damage, but this will be evaluated Wednesday morning.

He said the Highline Canal filled with more than four feet of mud, “but the good thing is that the canal is empty this time of year.”

KSL TV asked Cannon about the areas Woodland Hills, Elk Ridge, and Covered Bridge — all of which had flooding concerns.

“There has not been anything in those areas, at least nothing over the radio,” he said. “I’m hoping no news is good news.”

Woodland Hills City Councilmember Kari Malkovich said debris was light, and there has been no mud flow so far.

“We plan on conducting a drone study later today to further evaluate the situation,” she said.

A spokesperson for Loafer Canyon said the area experienced some minor street flooding, although they haven’t seen any debris flow from the nearby burn scar yet.

The Loafer Canyon official said there is a 24-hour watch in the canyon, and residents will be alerted as early as possible to flash flooding.

This story will be updated.
