State of emergency rescinded

6/15/2012

The local state of emergency and evacuation alert for residents living at a Walnut Grove property along Truswell Road has been rescinded.

Residents were put on alert after a retaining wall along Mission Creek was washed away.

The rest of the wall was in jeopardy of falling into the creek.

Deputy Fire Chief Jason Brolund says city crews worked through the night.

"In order to place over 30 truck loads worth of large rocks, were talking boulders about 3 - 6 feet in size.  Many of which went to the base of the creek, some of which were swept away and the rest remain in place there to protect this residence."

Residents are still asked to use extreme caution when around any area creeks and streams.
