New well designed for Auburn in preparation of possible future droughts

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - The city of Auburn is making sure it's prepared for any future droughts.

The Auburn City Water Works Board authorized the design of a new well in South Auburn. Construction is expected to start in a year and the city hopes to start using the well by spring 2020.

All of Auburn's water needs are currently being met or exceeded by the sources it uses. The new well focuses on future demands which won't reach the limit they can produce until 2050.
