Logan Bans Use Of City Water Because Of Reservoir Levels

Enid Martindale

A southeast Ohio city is banning the use of city water due to unsafe reservoir levels a day after the city was issued a boil advisory because of water quality issues stemming from a water main break.

The Hocking County Sheriff's Office sent out an alert Sunday evening to the residents of Logan stating the ban will remain effective until the reservoir returns to safe levels.

Authorities say residents shouldn't wash their cars, water their lawns or do anything else that could further drain the reservoir.
