Marc Giauque, KSL NewsradioIt could be the sign of a long summer for one Utah community. It's out of water.

Trucks from the North and South Summit County Fire Departments and the Summit County Public Works are shuttling water to Sagebrush Estate's dry tanks. It's relief for people in some 60 homes in the mountains just to the north and east of Park City.

Summit County Emergency Manager Butch Swensen says, "It said that they had a leak, they believe a leak, and when they discovered the leak, they had lost all of their water supply, about 180,000 gallons."

The water company says it's now repaired problems, but other managers in the area say the water system has had trouble keeping up with demand.

Swensen says the biggest concern is some water supply for fires. He says a fire in this mountainous area, especially with this weather, could be devastating.
