rockport fire recovery

The Rockport 5 fire in Summit County, Utah left the area scarred and susceptible to flooding and mudslides. Residents living on the lower end of the drainage area are worried about the possibility of flash flooding. Summit County officials expect it to take a month to put up debris basins and do aerial re-seeding on the mountain. A federal grant for up to $500,000 will help pay for the mitigation efforts. Federal officials will be at the burn scar, this week, scouting out areas where debris basins will be placed.
