The potential for the Logan River to reach flood stage is high this spring due to the large amount of snow pack in the mountains.
If your Memorial Day weekend plans take you near water, please exercise extreme caution as the rivers are fast flowing, freezing cold, and extremely dangerous. Keep children and pets away from these fast flowing waterways as they could easily and quickly be swept down stream.
Active Watches and Warnings
The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for Tuesday May 30 through Saturday June 3rd and could be extended. Read the entire text here.
A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts.
You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.

The City of Logan will provide opportunities for neighborhoods to sand bag their property along the river. Each neighborhood can call Charon Sprague with our Streets/Stormwater Division beginning Thursday May 4, 2017 to schedule evenings when City personnel and equipment can fill sand bags in your neighborhoods. Property owners can then place those sand bags on their property.
You can contact Charon at 435-716-9642
If she does not answer, please leave a message or you may also contact Jed Al-Imari at 435-716-9643
Citizens that have property adjacent to the river may also come to the Public Works building and fill sandbags for use on their property. The city will provide the sand and the sandbags for citizens to use. This operation will be available during our normal work hours of 8 am to 4:30 PM. The Public Works building is located at 450 North 1000 West in Logan.
PLEASE NOTE: The City will not remove sand bags from private property once the threat of flooding is over. Each property owner is responsible for disposing of the sandbags and sand.
If you have questions regarding flooding or sandbagging, please contact Charon or Jed and they can help with your questions.
