The source of Auburn’s drinking water is groundwater produced from wells located in our community. To help protect the underground aquifer and the water supply wells from contamination, the City of Auburn continues to implement the Wellhead Protection (WHP) Plan, which was originally approved by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) in April of 2003. The WHP Local Planning Team (LPT) meets annually to update the Plan and implement management strategies to protect Auburn’s drinking water source. A complete copy of the WHP Plan and educational pamphlets are available to the public at the Auburn Water Department (800 North Street).
