The breach repair project on the Weber River was completed Saturday and early indications are that the fix is holding, according to a news release from the Utah Department of Public Safety.
An email from Joe Dougherty, the department's spokesman, stated that the flow on the Ogden River, which flows into the Weber River, was reduced at Pineview Reservoir so the flow was not causing erosion problems during the work.
Temperatures continue to be below normal, slowing current flooding threats, but delaying snowmelt, the release states. There is still heightened flood potential for Logan River, Weber River, Upper Provo River (above Jordanelle) and Big and Little Cottonwood creeks. A flood warning is in effect for Weber County until 1:45 p.m. Thursday.
No safety incidents have been reported since June 13; however, the public is urged to keep in mind that the rivers and creeks fed by melting snow are running fast and very cold.
A person can be swept down a river at about 10 feet per second, the release states, and hypothermia can overcome a person in just minutes. Parents need to watch children around water.
