Logan Residents Asked To Conserve Water

Residents in Logan, Iowa are being urged to conserve water while workers try to figure out where a break may have occurred in the water system.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources sent out the alert on Monday morning.

They say that water for the city of Logan 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.

The Iowa DNR believes that the decrease in water production could be 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 problem is fixed, residents are being asked to conserve water as much as possible to retain an adequate supply.
