Logan City Residents Able to Use Conservative Amounts of Water

Logan City has issued the request due to sewage system being at capacity

LOGAN, Utah (ABC4 News) Logan City Residents are now able to use their water, but are asked to do it conservatively to avoid using water in excess. 

Friday night, the city tweeted residents of North Logan, Smithfield, Hyde Park, Providence, River Heights and those living by Utah State University, to stop doing laundry, taking showers, and flushing and use little to no water after the sewage system filled to capacity. 

As of 10 a.m. Saturday, the city indicated that residents are allowed to do certain things:

"Flows going into our sewage system are still at 2-3 times our normal flows. We ask that residents continue to be conservative about the amount of water they put down the drain.

For example, if you need to shower, please make it short. If you must do dishes, make sure it is a full load and use eco settings on your dishwasher. Similarly with laundry, if you can limit the number of loads and do only full loads and use eco-cycles."

Friday night, the city posted that the city had received 1.17 inches of rainfall in the past two days and the unusually high temperatures has melted several feet of snow, causing flooding and damage to residents around the Cache Valley.
