Water Conservation Program
Due to the regulations imposed by the Environmental Protection Division
and the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District
, the Water System has implemented and has available several water conservation measures as follows:
- Free Low-Flow Fixtures Conversion Kits, which include:
- Additional water conservation information
- New low-flow shower head
- Three low-flow faucet aerators for kitchens and bathrooms
- Toilet water saver
- Toilet leak detection tablets
- Low-Flow Toilet Rebate Program which offers a $50 rebate on toilet replacements in homes built prior to 1995
- Three-tiered conservation rate structure which increases the volumetric costs with increased usage
Everyone is encouraged to start their own water conservation program.
What is the 40 Gallon Challenge?
The 40 Gallon Challenge is a call for residents and businesses to reduce our region's water use on average by 40 gallons per person, per day. The challenge began in 2011 as a voluntary campaign to increase water conservation.
The 40 Gallon Challenge encourages people to save a minimum of 40 gallons a day by adopting new water-saving techniques. The pledge card outlines water-saving practices and the daily water-savings to expect. You can use the pledge to review the water-saving practices that you or your family currently puts to use. By pledging new practices, you will see the total daily savings expected for your household.
The 40 Gallon Challenge also provides maps and charts to see pledge activities in your state and across the United States.
I took the 40 Gallon Challenge and pledged to save X gallons of water daily for Georgia. How much water will you save? Go to http://www.40GallonChallenge.org.
