Debris-flood and debris-flow hazard from Lone Pine Canyon near Centerville, Davis County, Utah (RI-223)
By: W. E. Mulvey
At the request of Centerville City, the Utah Geological Survey conducted a geologic investigation at the mouth of Lone Pine canyon. The purpose of the investigation was to estimate the potential for future debris flows or debris floods reaching the proposed development in the Parsons gravel pit where the Lone Pine Canyon drainage meets the valley floor. This principally involved determining whether sediment from the canyon could reach the valley floor or would be deposited on the Bonneville shoreline bench 800 feet (250 m) above the valley. Another goal of the study was to provide an estimate of the possible volumes of individual debris floods and debris flows for use in evaluating the need for hazard-reduction measures.
