2023 Creek Floods (Page in Progress)
The 2023 monsoon season was one of the more intense seasons in recent memory. In addition to many floods in both Mill and Pack creeks an intense storm cell caused flooding in Spanish Valley and also in the upper reaches of Mill Creek. In October Rim to Rim was asked to present some information about the flood at the Moab Festival of Science. The video below is a repeat of that presentation as given to the National Park Service as a part of their Brown Bag Lunch series. It shows some of the impacts of that flood on Moab, and goes over some of the long term implications for the town.
This content will be updated soon to include more information as it develops.
