Dothan, AL - The City of Dothan officially has a plan to keep water flowing for the next five decades.
Tuesday, the city commission approved the drilling of thirteen additional water wells over the next fifty years.
The project will cost the city about $58 million.
Leaders say this is the most cost effective solution.
“This will evolve. If this doesn't work 3, 5, 10 years from now, we'll find another plan. We feel comfortable that this engineering plan will work 50 years from now. We're going to start today,” said Mayor Mike Schmitz.
They'll start by drilling a test well just north of Dothan.
Work should begin in the next sixty days.
