Storm Cleanup – Crews Coming Monday

Good Evening All – Here’s the latest on our chipping and storm cleanup operations.

United Fire Authority and Utah DNR crews were back in the canyon today, trying to complete our original chipping list. Our chipping crews have done what they were able to accomplish, so we’re now shifting to heavier equipment to remove trees and branches that came down in the storm.

On Monday we’ll have two crews in the canyon with frontend loaders and trucks. One will start near the old Sun and Moon. The other will start at the top of the canyon and work down. Both will focus on new storm downfall.

Please pile any trees and brush you wish to have removed by the side of the road by Monday morning. 

ONLY storm-damaged trees, branches and brush should go into these piles. We’re getting green waste disposal rates for these loads, and any contaminants could raise our already considerable costs.

Our hope is to clear all significant storm damage by end of day Monday.

It’s going to be a busy weekend. Work safe out there!
