The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), with the Cache Water District, Crockett Avenue Irrigation and the cities of Logan, North Logan and Hyde Park as the project sponsors, is proposing to partially fund through the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act [Public Law (PL) 83-566], the Logan River Watershed Plan in Cache County, Utah. The plan will address flood control and flood protection, evaluate measures to reduce water loss and increase efficiency in the current irrigation delivery system and consider additional recreational facilities.[NRCS]

Cracks in the wall » Shareholders who get water from the Logan Northern Canal trace their rights to an 1860 legal document that gives the canal’s owners a right to 23 percent of the available flow from the Logan River, according to USU records. Because it has long been a private operation, communities refused to help maintain the canal until the 1990s, when Harris and other company officials persuaded government leaders city storm runoff was affecting the canal.[SLTRIB]
