The 2022-23 winter has produced a significant amount of snowpack which has the potential to impact spring runoff, mid-April to early June. The possibility of flooding from increased spring runoff is real. Working in partnership with Summit County and state agencies, Park City Municipal’s Emergency Management, Stormwater and Public Works teams are closely monitoring runoff conditions and are prepared to respond to flood emergencies.
Visit the Summit County Flooding & Sandbag Information website for current updates and flood resources including flood insurance and a flood plain map locator.
