NORTH LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Shareholders of a canal company have backed a plan to join with another company and move forward on a $25 million project to rehabilitate the two waterways.

Shareholders of the Logan, Hyde Park and Smithfield Canal Company voted 1,647 shares to 47 shares on Wednesday in favor of merging with the Logan and Northern Irrigation Company.

On July 11 a mudslide killed a mother and her two children in their Logan home. The Logan Northern Canal broke during the slide, prompting discussions about how to manage the waterways. The canal that broke is managed by the Logan and Northern Irrigation Company.

The shareholders of the Logan and Northern would also have to approve the plan. A vote is scheduled for Nov. 23.

The project for the waterways involves plans to pipe and line one canal and connect the two.
