Emergency Management




Due to recent heavy rains and spring run-off, the Summit Creek Irrigation Reservoir, just east of Summit Ridge, has reached capacity.  On behalf of Summit Creek Irrigation Company, Santaquin City Public Works crews worked proactively to create a controlled release situation of excess water.  That excess water has been safely channeled and potential further damage to structures or roadways has been averted for now.  Additionally, pumps have been deployed to further mitigate issues that might arise from further spring run-off.  However, we need to remain vigilant as temperatures rise and water levels increase.

Residents are encouraged to stay away from any water source; river, fast-running stream, etc. for safety reasons and to keep a close eye on children and pets around any water you may encounter in your Spring recreation activities.

Check Santaquin.org or Santaquin City Facebook pages for ongoing updates.
