Flooding Danger In Millcreek

Millcreek Mayor, Jeff Silvestrini, has announced a state of emergency in response to the increasing risk of flooding in the area. The mayor is urging residents to take action by volunteering their time at a sandbag-filling event scheduled for April 15th. The first 500 volunteers will receive a complimentary coupon for the new Pizza Nono location.

Several areas, including Red Butte Creek, Emigration Creek, City Creek, Big Cottonwood Creek, Little Cottonwood Creek, and Millcreek, are the most vulnerable to flooding. Residents are advised to report any stream blockages or potential blockages to the city and to clear debris from storm drains and ditches near their properties.

The mayor’s declaration of a state of emergency underscores the seriousness of the situation and the need for the community to come together to take preventive measures. The sandbag-filling event presents an opportunity for residents to assist in this effort and help mitigate the risks of flooding.

Residents are encouraged to stay updated on the situation and follow the city’s guidelines to ensure their safety and the safety of their property.
