ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- The Dixie National Forest has started repairing the damage caused by last month's flooding in Washington County.

They are repairing several roads and replacing stream crossings.

Damage is estimated at more than 2 (M)million dollars and includes eight major Forest Service roads and at least two bridges in Washington County.

The Forest Service will close roads during repairs for safety reasons. They have already closed the severely damaged road to Enterprise Reservoir.

The Forest Service is also asking residents to stay away from the Enterprise Dam because of concerns of its stability.
