Due to significant rainfall and improved water supplies, Georgia’s rivers and streams have rebounded. Effective June 10, 2009, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) issued a non-drought schedule for outdoor water use for the first time since June 2006. Under a non-drought schedule, outdoor water use is allowed three days a week on assigned days using the odd and even numbered address method. The mayor and council voted at the June 15, 2009 City Council meeting to change our drought condition water restrictions in order to conform with the State's.
Odd-numbered addresses can water on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.
Even-numbered and unnumbered addresses are allowed to water on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.
Water use may occur at any time of the day on the assigned days, but to be water efficient, landscape watering should not occur between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm. The non-drought schedule is included in the rules for outdoor water use. No outdoor watering on Fridays is permitted.
