Engineering Geology

By: H. E. Gill and W. R. Lund

Park City began as a mining community in the late 1860s and mining continued actively in the area for more than 100 years. In the 1970s skiing surpassed mining as the major industry in the area. Due to a rapid increase in population and tourism, and subsequent need for additional facilities, pressure for development in possible problem areas, such as flood plains and steep hillsides, has increased. Development in these relatively hazardous areas requires early recognition of geologic constraints on construction. It is the purpose of this report to provide general information on geologic conditions and hazards in Park City for use in making planning decisions.
