SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Two Salt Lake County flood-control workers who were caught dumping debris into a creek are now under investigation.
Officials say the employees face possible criminal charges by the District Attorney's Office as well as the Environmental Protection Agency.
Last month, the workers collected a large load of debris and floodwater off catch basins near Big Cottonwood Creek. But instead of emptying the truck at the Midvale evaporation pond, they dumped the load in a nearby drain that leads back to the creek.
The incident was caught on camera by a resident who sent the evidence to the county Mayor's Office.
The workers have received written reprimands along with their supervisors.
