NIBLEY, Utah — Saturday night officials of Nibley said residents can now resume normal use of their drains, and the City of Logan expects their water users to be back to normal usage by Sunday evening.

“Have a dishes party, take a shower etc. Reminder ALL flood/stormwater in and around your home should be discharged in your yard or street (NOT the drains in your home). Drinking water is safe,” Nibley City said in a Facebook post.

On Friday Cache County police asked residents to limit their water due to flooding.

Residents of Logan, Smithfield, Hyde Park, North Logan, Providence, River Heights, and Utah State University are still asked to limit their water use, but the City of Logan said Sunday that flows are approaching manageable levels. While residents were urged to be conservative Sunday, the city said they can “ease into normal water use [Sunday] evening].
