DRY CREEK HYDROLOGY STUDY:

We held a scoping meeting with Bowen Collins & Associates and processed the Notice to Proceed for this project. We then held a kick-off meeting with them, Salt Lake County Engineering, Public Works, and representatives from administration to coordinate the three different projects that are all affected by the resultant study. BCA is quickly performing the preliminary hydraulic and hydrologic analysis to get some numbers that we can work with, and then they will finalize the report/study.
