This work was led by Jason Christensen, Water Resources Manager. Each year, the Smart 50 Award honors 50 of the most transformative and influential projects. Park City maintains a complex network of pressure-reduction valves in an effort to provide water at the correct pressure to its residents.

Spring Runoff Update
City staff provided an update regarding spring runoff. The 2018-19 winter produced a significant amount of snowpack, which may impact our spring runoff. With this year's area snowpack reaching 142-162% of the 1981-2010 average, staff wanted to take this opportunity to share Council and the community information on current conditions and the availability of sandbags for use by the community. The higher than normal snow pack doesn’t necessarily mean flooding is imminent. Our current snowpack is very similar to 2016-17 which saw an orderly runoff, with no flooding and we expect a similar runoff this year
