LAWRENCEVILLE -- Gwinnett's county seat has made another stride in its goal of increasing its independence from Lake Lanier for water.
City officials announced Thursday another water well has been activated.
The well, located on Johnson Road, is currently pumping 100 gallons per minute, bringing the city production to 447,840 gallons of water per day, nearly a quarter of its average daily demand, a press release said.
"Lawrenceville's water and its utilities as a whole are one of the best services we provide our residents and businesses," Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson said. "We are pleased to be able to offer additional capacity through this well and look for other opportunities to enhance our services to the community in the future."
The city, which currently purchases the bulk of its water from the Gwinnett Department of Water Resources, plans to begin pumping another well, located along Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road, in the coming weeks.
