A public meeting has been scheduled concerning the Ashley Valley Flood Control project. According to Uintah County Commissioner Bill Stringer, the meeting will present the first report from the engineering company. Jones Demille/Sunrise Engineering received the bid in August to revisit the original Ashley Valley Flood Plan in order to identify specific areas that are at risk of flooding. “They have gone and collected the data of where it floods, how much and when,” explains Stringer. “It’s impossible to flood proof the entire county so we look instead at where the potential is the worst.” The meeting will allow citizens the opportunity to give feedback and a wide variety of opinions are expected. The County has been exploring ways to mitigate flood risks in the Ashley Valley in recent years and was awarded $8.7 million dollars in grant funding along with a $2.1 million dollar zero percent interest loan for the project through the Community Impact Board earlier this year. The public flood control meeting will be held on November 29th at the Western Park at 6:00pm.
