LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Logan City officials are reminding residents to watch their water use.

The city jumps into conservation mode when the city's usage hits 29 million gallons of water a day.

The city has hit that mark twice this month and has hovered near it the rest of the time.

So the city has sent out information encouraging residents to conserve.

Officials say when the community responds to such requests, water use numbers decrease by about 2 million gallons per day.

If usage doesn't go down, officials can institute a mandatory conservation orders under the threat of fines.
