(May 3, 2005)-(KSL NEWS) St. George - Heavy snowpack in the mountains has Washington County officials worried about additional flooding. Washington County Commissioner James Eardley says he is still concerned about flooding in neighborhoods along the Virgin River because the spring run off has yet to come down.
The Federal Government has promised the County 66 million dollars for flood relief. Congress is expected to pass the bill for the flooding in the next two weeks. The money will be used to clean out debris channels and sure up the river bank.
