The town of Seymour is once again hooking up five additional wells that were the main water source for the city years ago.

City Administrator John Studer says the wells were drilled in 1950 and at that time they were the main water source for Seymour.

The city stopped using the wells in 1990 when the rain was plentiful and the city's Reverse Osmosis Treatment Plant was built.

But he says the city has learned you never know what to expect.

"Everybody said we'd never need those wells ever again because we had so much water out west of town. But, never say never," Studer says.  

He says it takes about 1300 gallons of water supply a minute in order to run Seymour's Reverse Osmosis Treatment Plant.

Until that is possible he says they will continue to use the wells.
