Logan River restoration project receives strong criticism at Logan municipal council meeting

Logan City’s proposed river restoration update on two sections of the Logan  River got strong criticism Tuesday night at a meeting of the municipal council.

Public Works director Mark Nielsen said the work along the Logan River Golf Course targeted Crack Willow Trees that were within the high water area of the river and would have made flooding more likely. He said debris that had accumulated over many years was also removed.

The work along the golf course ended on Saturday, March 29 and the trail was opened on Sunday, March 30. Environmentalists and others at Tuesday night’s meeting had strong criticism of the way it was done. One critic said it looks like a, “glorified irrigation canal.”
