Sewer overflows into Michigan Center Lake in Leoni Township


This Tuesday, June 11, 2019, photo shows the raging waters in the Big Cottonwood Creek, near Salt Lake City. The summer’s melting snowpack is creating rivers that are running high, fast and icy cold. The state’s snowpack this winter was about 150 percent higher than the historical average and double the previous year, which was the driest on record dating back to 1874, said Brian McInerney, hydrologist for the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City.
