Construction Crews have begun work on a flood debris removal and drainage channel restoration project in Santaquin Canyon. The work is being done as part of the Utah County Emergency Watershed Protection (EWP) Project, funded through the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).  This is a mitigation project following the devastating wildfires of late summer 2018. The fires destroyed vast areas of watershed around Santaquin Canyon and created flood and debris hazards from the resulting burn scars. Restoration efforts along Summit Creek and at the Santaquin Canyon debris basin are expected to continue through December 7, 2020. Residents and recreationalists are advised of increased heavy truck traffic in Santaquin Canyon, along Santaquin Canyon Road, Highland Drive, and Highway 198 and should reduce speeds and use caution in work zones.
