Abstract

A high-intensity rainstorm focused above Slide Canyon in North Ogden, Utah, during September 1991. This storm exceeded all previous records for the state and resulted in a debris flow that discharged onto an existing fan and into a residential neighborhood. This investigation discusses the event in light of other historical debris flows occuring along the Wasatch Front and illustrates the need for more stringent building-code policies at the base of active fans in mountainous regions
