AUBURN, Ala.- The Auburn Water Works Board has lifted all drought-related water restrictions effective immediately.
The City of Auburn received more than 18 inches of rainfall during June and July of 2017. Because of this, as well as the current construction schedule for the Lake Ogletree Spillway Improvements Project, Lake Ogletree (the City’s primary drinking water supply) is currently at 481 feet, which is within the Optimal Pool Cycle for this time of year as identified in the Auburn Water Works Board’s (AWWB’s) Drought Management Plan. Therefore, all drought-related water restrictions may be lifted.
The Lake Ogletree Spillway Improvements Project is slated to finish this fall.
