Water Conservation / Drought

Level 1 drought response

On October 18, 2019 the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) declared a Level 1 Drought Response. Water only as needed! Remember: In the winter months, outdoor plants need less water. Water when plants show signs of distress (curling, wilting, graying foliage). 

Here are some things all of us can do to reduce our water use: 

  • Regularly check for and fix leaks inside and outside your business and home.
  • Take shorter showers and turn off water when shaving or brushing teeth.
  • Run dishwashers and washing machines only when you have full loads.
