BROUSSARD, La. (AP) - The city of Broussard is going to drill three water wells to accommodate commercial and residential growth.

The wells also will allow Broussard to severe ties with Lafayette Utilities System.

Mayor Charles Langlinais said in a news release received by The Advertiser (https://bit.ly/1RsPj0I) the city approved the drilling of three test water wells at various parts of the city at a cost of $180,000 to $360,000.

When the test wells are completed, probably around September, water samples will be tested and flow tests will be conducted to determine capacity.

If all goes well, the city will move ahead with the drilling of three permanent wells at a cost of about $3.75 million. Langlinais says the permanent wells could be completed by May 2016.
