Northwest Field canal users in Logan to see restrictions

Users of the Logan Northwest Field Irrigation Company will be facing irrigation restrictions starting Monday due to the low flow of the Logan River.

The irrigation system is on the west side of Logan and runs south and north along 400 West and 200 West. This is at least the second canal company to announce restrictions this summer. Earlier this month, the Logan Hyde Park Smithfield Canal Company did the same.

The newest restrictions divide users in half depending on where they live. The first group of irrigation users who will see restrictions live between 250 South and 100 North. Irrigation water usage in this area will be banned the entire week of July 29 to Aug. 3. Residents can begin watering again Aug. 4. Herald Journal
