2018 Outdoor Water Use | Print |

OUTDOOR WATER USE

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Environmental Protection Division lifted the Level 1 Drought Response March 8, 2018, for Fulton and 11 other North Georgia counties.

Fulton County has a water waste ordinance, requiring citizens to avoid excessive runoff from irrigation and other outdoor water uses as well as from visible leaks, and all Georgians are required to follow the permanent non-drought water use schedule set in place by the Water Stewardship Act of 2010. This schedule allows all outdoor water uses but requires landscape watering to be done before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. The schedule is intended to reduce water lost to evaporation during the warmest part of the day. More information on the non-drought schedule can be found at  https://epd.georgia.gov/non-drought-outdoor-water-use-schedule.          

Water efficiency is essential to protect the current and future water supply for Fulton County and the rest of the region, and customers are encouraged to continue practicing daily conservation habits. As a conservation incentive, Fulton County is participating in the toilet rebate program being offered by The Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District to replace older toilets with high-efficiency WaterSense labeled models.  Please visit www.northgeorgiawater.com for specific details about the program and an application.
