Six teenagers were rescued near a water diversion tunnel in Auburn, Massachusetts after they were unable to get back to land on their own

After the Auburn Police Department was able to locate them using the cell phone of one of the teens, emergency personnel arrived at the scene and used a rope to get all six of them to dry land. The teens sustained only minor scratches and did not require any medical attention.

Water diversion is a common issue in many areas, and can be dangerous if not properly addressed. Water diversion is the process of moving water from one place to another, and can be done for many reasons such as agriculture, energy production, or to supply water to communities.

It is important to remember that water diversion can have negative impacts on the environment and local ecosystems

Diverting water from rivers or streams can reduce the amount of water available for plants and animals that depend on it, which can lead to habitat loss and decreased biodiversity.

In addition, water diversion can also impact water quality, as water that is diverted may be polluted or contaminated, and can harm downstream communities that rely on it for drinking water or other uses.

In the case of the Auburn teenagers, it is fortunate that they were able to call for help and be rescued safely. However, it serves as a reminder of the potential dangers of water diversion, and the importance of proper safety precautions and awareness when near water diversion sites.
