Tooele County prepares for another round of thunderstorms



Tooele County, Utah — On Monday people in Tooele County were assessing the damage done by Sunday’s rains while expecting another round of thunderstorms.

A self serves, the sandbagging station was in operation at the city maintenance shed.

Settlement Canyon was one of three canyons closed pending cleanup. But things were rough down in the city as well.

“So, currently we are still in response mode, dealing with this weather cell that we have going through right now,” said Brittany Lopez, Assistant County Manager Tooele County. “The biggest bulk of our damage was done to our canyons and we have road crews up each one of our canyons clearing debris. Both middle, settlement, and soldier canyons received a big bulk of the damage.”

According to Lopez, if for whatever reason you are unable to bag your own sand, give them a call and they will make arrangements to have sandbags delivered to you (435) 843-3160.
