April 11, 2024 — Mitigation efforts at Panguitch Lake Dam are proving successful. Water levels have dropped significantly, and the dam’s tilt has been greatly reduced. Crews are continuing work to reinforce the dam, and officials will continue to lower water levels as a precaution.

In its 3:00 PM update today, the Utah Department of Public SafetyOpens in a new tab. stated that “No infrastructure has been damaged or lost. Only minor washouts have occurred due to the increased water flow in Panguitch Creek and area ditches and canals. Those issues were managed and controlled as they arose.”

Panguitch residents are still advised to be prepared, and sandbags remain available.
