BOX ELDER COUNTY - March 16, 2023
As predicted last week, heavy rainstorms arrived in Box Elder County and oh boy, did they wreak some havoc along the way too. In northern parts of the county, residents starting reporting flooding issues in fields, pastures, roads, basements and more after heavy rainstorms hit Utah earlier this week.
Rural towns such as Snowville, experienced severe flooding at Snowville Elementary School as community members rallied together to fill sandbags and more to divert water after a canal breach. See a previously posted article on those efforts at BRVNEWS.com on the link below.

Meanwhile in Tremonton, homes just west of Sky Way Golf Course once again saw the brunt of the flood waters as streets in nearby areas were underwater. It wasn't the first-time neighborhoods in that area have experienced flooding either.
The banks of the Malad River along Garland and Tremonton were overflowing with excess water from melting snow and rain. The Bear River along Collinston and Deweyville also experienced overflowing banks. In rural towns such as Elwood, Bothwell and Thatcher, fields and pastures were covered in several inches of standing water while community members worked diligently to prevent any damage to nearby homes.
