Flash Flooding

Many of you may be aware of the flash flooding that hit US89A between Marble Canyon and House Rock Valley on August 9th. The rain total was between 1.3 and 1.7 inches in 15-20 minutes and is an estimated 200 year event. The really large (trailer-size) boulders in some of the photos were washed down to the culverts from House Rock Valley which is about 1.5 miles upstream. Some of these were actually pushed up onto the road surface when they met the culverts.

Clear Protection for Clean Water

Today, in an historic step for the protection of clean water, EPA and the U.S. Army finalized a rule under the Clean Water Act to more clearly protect the streams and wetlands that form the foundation of the nation’s water resources.

Clean water and water ecology are topics of special interest to many environmental educators. Students of all ages understand the importance of clean water in their own lives. Local watersheds provide opportunities to connect students to nature.

Learn more about protecting clean water with these resources.
