The City of Auburn is a thriving community of approximately 56,900 residents. It is a college town and is the home of Auburn University, which has an enrollment of just over 25,000. The City has been marked in recent years by rapid growth.

Auburn sits near the divide between the Chattahoochee and Tallapoosa River watersheds. It is also divided into two sewer service basins, the Northside basin and the H.C. Morgan (or Southside) basin. The City has two treatment facilities – the Northside Water Pollution Control Facility (WPCF), which has a permitted capacity of two million gallons per day (315 m3/h), and the H.C. Morgan WPCF, which has a permitted capacity of 11.25 million gallons per day (1,772 m3/h). The Plants were originally constructed in 1985 and were the first privatized plants in Alabama. The City owns these plants and currently has operations contracts with Veolia Water North America.
