LOGAN — After oil got into an irrigation canal here Saturday, residents were warned not to use the water if it was discolored or smelled strange.
Oil from a chip and seal road project got into the canal in the North Logan and Hyde Park area, said Cache County Fire Marshal Jason Winn.
Officers responded about 7 p.m. and discovered the oil had apparently washed from the road's surface on 1800 North and into the canal during a rainstorm Saturday evening.
Cleanup crews were in the area Saturday night working to contain the spill.
In the meantime, residents who noticed their irrigation water was brown or had an unusual order were told not to water their properties.
