Would you like to learn more about what Lincoln, Sweetwater and Uinta counties are doing to minimize the impacts of floods, dam failures, wildfires, hazardous materials incidents, and other hazards? The plan assesses risks posed by natural and man-made hazards, identifies ways to reduce those risks, and allows each county to be eligible for mitigation grant funding from FEMA. County planning teams, including representatives from all municipalities, developed the plan over the past 6 months with assistance from a consultant, Synergy Disaster Recovery. The plan identifies hazard mitigation goals and mitigation projects for the counties, with the intent of reducing losses from hazard events before they occur again. A series of public workshops were held during the planning process to solicit input on the hazards and ideas for mitigation projects. Uinta County Region 4 Mitigation Plan 2022 was approved in June of 2022 by Uinta County, Lyman, Mountain View, Bear River and Evanston.
Hardcopies will also be available for review upon request through the Lincoln County Office of Emergency Management, the Sweetwater County Emergency Management Agency, or Uinta County Emergency Management.
