NORTH LOGAN — Governor Cox has declared a state of emergency in Utah due to current the drought conditions. Utah and Cache Valley have had historically low rainfall this water year, as well as in multiple years past, as has the broader western United States. Hotter than average temperatures early in this season have led to increased demand for water.

These drought conditions in North Logan City, Logan City and Hyde Park City have diminished the amount of water available for culinary uses. There is now a need for the cities to conserve water and provide for availability of water for residents. The three cities are working together to call on residents to reduce their water use, enabling conservation of our precious water resources, and to reduce water consumption through measures such as:

  • Following city and state guidelines for water conservation, including the number of days per week to water.
  • Not watering during the heat of the day when water is lost to evaporation.
  • Taking showers rather than baths.
  • Repairing leaking faucets, toilets or other water-using fixtures.
  • Running dishwashers and laundry machines only when full.

As summer wears on and conditions unfold, the cities may request additional voluntary and/or mandatory conservation measures consistent with the needs from ways the drought impacts the cities’ water sources, treatment plants, and distribution systems.

    It is interesting that they want residents to conserve, the city waters the cemetery daily. Yes I know it is secondary water, but they want others water less. Every morning I walk and I’m amazed at how many times a week people water and for how long they do it. They shouldn’t put it all on the residence of the town. Right now people shouldn’t water after 8 in the morning.
