Pond Created By Last Year’s Massive Mudslide Could Overflow

Collbran and Mesa County residents are preparing for possible evacuation in the event that weekend rain overflows the pond created by last year's massive mudslide in western Colorado.

The Daily Sentinel reports that county engineering manager and West Salt Creek landslide incident commander Pete Baier says residents were warned Wednesday, the same day the National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for the area.
