Water Conservation | Print |

Fulton County is committed to providing our customers with a safe and adequate supply of drinking water. We actively promote conservation through our comprehensive Water Conservation Plan in addition to many other educational programs.

On November 17, 2016, The Director of Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) issued a Level 2 Drought Declaration for 52 counties, including Fulton County.   Download a printable tip sheet to learn more about how to be a good steward of our limited water supply to ensure water is available for generations to come. Water Conservation is everyone’s business and it begins with you!


July (and every month!) Is Smart Irrigation Month

The Facts on Leaks:

  • The average household's leaks can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year, or the amount of water needed to wash 270 loads of laundry.
  • Household leaks can waste more than 1 trillion gallons annually nationwide. That's equal to the annual household water use of more than 11 million homes.
  • Ten percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day.
  • Common types of leaks found in the home include worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets, and leaking showerheads. All are easily correctable.
  • Fixing easily corrected household water leaks can save homeowners about 10 percent on their water bills.  
  • Keep your home leak-free by repairing dripping faucets, toilet flappers, and shower heads. In most cases, fixture replacement parts don’t require a major investment.
  • Most common leaks can be eliminated after retrofitting a household with new WaterSense labeled fixtures and other high-efficiency appliances.
