Although the problems are less severe, Jim Harps, Logan City’s <a href=”http://www.loganutah.org/government/departments/environmental/waste_water_treatment.php” target=”_blank”>wastewater treatment</a> manager, said the challenges are not over and residents in the cities affected should continue conservation practices. Harps said Monday was a big cleanup day for the city and for many of its residents following several days of rain and melting snow. He expressed appreciation to those who took conservation efforts seriously.
“Even though the restrictions, we’ve eased them and gone away from them for now,” Harps said, “any conservation would still be beneficial, especially within the collection system. We did relatively well in our collection system as far as avoiding flooding. If we could continue to do that, that would be wonderful.”
Harps said the city’s big challenge now is keeping the water contained and then pumping it where it needs to go—to the lagoons and to the treatment plant where it belongs.
