Shareholders of the Logan and Northern Canal now have water restored to their access points, according to project spokesperson Andy Neff.
In July 2009 a breach in the canal caused a landslide that killed 3 residents of Cache Valley. Due to the closure of that section of the canal, shareholders have not been able to access irrigation water from the canal.
Road work on the sections where the road was cut to lay pipe for the canal is expected to begin the week of May 20th and continue through the end of the month.
