Logan Canal EWP Progress(2:48) -- The Cache Water Restoration Project--a community partnership in Logan, Utah--is working with the Natural Resources Conservation Service through the Emergency Watershed Protection (EWP) program to restore water to the community and farmers following a devastating breach of the historic canal in 2009.
The Logan Northern Canal Reconstruction project area is located in the northeastern part of Cache County in northern Utah. Cache County covers an area of about 1,165 square miles. The study area includes unincorporated areas of Cache County and parts of the cities of Logan, North Logan, and Hyde Park.
This Record of Decision (ROD) documents the decision by the Utah office of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS-Utah) to disburse Emergency Watershed Protection Program (EWPP) funds for the Logan Northern Canal Reconstruction project. Because the EWPP is a Federal program, activity associated with the EWPP is subject to the provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). Federal funding, along with matching funds from project stakeholders, will be used to implement the proposed project.
NRCS prepared a Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the project. The Final EIS describes the project and the impacts of the project and proposes mitigation for identified impacts. The EIS finds that the project will not cause any significant effects on the natural or built environment.
NRCS has prepared the EIS for proposed repair, replacement, and/or modifications to the Logan Northern Canal system. During the spring of 2009, a slope failure occurred along a hillside in south Logan, resulting in damage to the LNC and disabling the water distribution capabilities of the canal. The canal is located in an unincorporated area of Cache County and the communities of Logan, North Logan, and Hyde Park, Utah. NRCS is assisting the sponsoring local organization, Cache County, through the Emergency Watershed Protection (EWP) Program.
