Storm ushers out summer, dumping rain and flooding southwest - Salt Lake Tribune- Topic: DrainageNews

Saturday's rains in southern Utah caused flooding that washed out the driveway to Brooks Baker's home in Dammeron Valley. DAMMERON VALLEY - Southwest Utah residents spent the last day of summer wearing raincoats, carrying umbrellas and watching water rush down the street or into their yards. A powerful storm dumped large amounts of rain Saturday, prompting flash flood watches and warnings for much of the area, according to the National Weather Service. The weather service estimated areas of eastern Washington, central Iron and western Kane and Garfield counties received between 1 and 2 inches of rain Saturday. The storm slowly moved north but did not cause significant flooding in the area of the Milford Flat fire, which charred much of eastern Beaver and Millard counties this summer. Baker wants culverts along State Road 18 improved to divert water into the Santa Clara River, either to the north through existing culverts or south through natural drainages. read me
