Water Conservation Advisory Issued for City of Logan
Posted: 01/27/2014
LOGAN – Residents of the city of Logan are being urged to conserve water while workers try to determine where a break may have occurred in the system.

Water for the city of Logan, located in Harrison County, comes from four wells located several miles from town. The amount of water coming in from the wells has been gradually decreasing in recent weeks from approximately 250 gallons per minute to approximately 160 gallons per minute.

It is believed that the decrease in water production is due to a break in a line somewhere in the system. Crews spent most of the weekend trying to locate the problem, but have so far been unsuccessful.

The city currently has a full storage tank at 250,000 gallons, but uses and average of 160,000 to 170,000 gallons a day.

Until the cause of the problem can be determined and repaired, residents are being asked to conserve water as much as possible to retain an adequate supply.
