ASHBURN, GA (WALB) - A new well in Ashburn could save homeowners and businesses money on their home insurance. City leaders said the well will improve water supply to the fire department--directly impacting the ISO rating.
The city now has more than 950,000 gallons of water in reserve. The water supply can handle a population growth and major fires.
"Water supply is a huge concern. That will not be a concern here. I think we could have 2 good-sized structure fires and be able to fight it. Water would never be our concern," said Ashburn City Manager Dan Bollinger.
The well should be completed within 90 days.
