Heavy rain may bring increased flood risk if gutters and inlets are full of snow and debris. We don’t anticipate major runoff until May, but you should start monitoring your property now. 


Here’s what you should do to be proactive and prepared:

  1. Inspect your rain gutters and downspouts and confirm that they are clear of snow and debris
  2. Be sure storm drains closest to your home and the area around them are clear of any debris
  3. Pay attention to your landscaping making sure water drains away from your home
  4. Keep children and pets away from potential flood and drainage areas



  • If you encounter a flooding emergency, call 911. 
  • For non-emergency questions or concerns, call Public Utilities, and leave a message at 801-352-4400. (You can also report an issue via the Sandy City Serve App:
  • If you leave a message, please leave your name, phone number, and property address. We will respond on Monday.
  • For up-to-date information about flooding and high-winds, check:


As we prepare for possible upcoming storms, keep in mind that as the snowpack begins to melt there is potential for fast moving storm water. Safety is the number one goal. If you see a problem with a storm drain, grate, or inlet, please call Public Utilities at 801-352-4400.

Also, our city parks double as stormwater retention/detention ponds during storm events. Because storm water is not treated, there is great potential for the water to carry pollutants. Please refrain from walking, kayaking, and playing in the ponds.
