Attention Fuel Delivery Truck/other HAZMAT Vehicles

The Lake Auburn Watershed Neighborhood Association (LAWNA) would like to remind the driver’s of the dangers associated with the roads around Lake Auburn, our community’s water supply.  The North Auburn Road and Lake Shore Drive are Federal-Aid Urban collector highways that are NOT IN SATISFACTORY condition.  In fact, there are excessive crowns, road perforations, improperly signed on curves, culvert and frost heaves, low shoulders and inappropriate speed limits that could cause your vehicle to deviate from your intended path.

EXTREME CAUTION SHOULD BE USED BY UTILIZING SLOWER SPEEDS UNTIL ROAD REPAIRS CAN BE SCHEDULED!  ONE ACCIDENT/ROLL OVER COULD EASILY POLLUTE OUR WATER SUPPLY AND CAUSE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN DAMAGE TO THIS PUBLIC RESOURCE and our environment.
