LOGAN, Iowa (AP) - Residents in the western Iowa city of Logan have been asked to conserve water as officials investigate a possible leak in the distribution system.

The state Department of Natural Resources says the amount of water coming into the city from four wells has been gradually decreasing over several weeks. Water production has decreased from about 250 gallons per minute to about 160 gallons per minute.

Workers spent the weekend looking for a break in a line but have so far been unsuccessful.

Residents are being asked to conserve water in order to retain an adequate supply. The city currently has a full storage tank at 250,000 gallons, but it uses an average of 160,000 to 170,000 gallons every day.
