Are the canals a flood risk?

The four main canals that flow through Bluffdale are not typically a flood risk, as they are not filled until at least April 15th, and canal companies control water levels. Much like the canals, the amount of water allowed into the Jordan River from Utah Lake is controlled. The Jordan River will see more significant flows but should not see volume above the flood rim level.
