Potential flooding possible around the Spearfish area


The Spearfish Public Works office is advising residents of the potential risk for flooding and surface water run-off, with the snow melt due to above average snow pack and the warm weather.

Tonya Vig, floodplain administrator with the City of Spearfish said that with the ground frozen, the water is not able to be absorbed causing water run-off to be higher. 

If you see debris blockages in the creeks, culverts plugged, or storm sewer grates blocked in the streets, you are asked to call the Spearfish Public Works Office at 642-1333, or the Police Department at 642-1300.
