EPD Elevates Drought Response Drought conditions across most of Georgia have worsened

EPD Elevates Drought Response
Drought conditions across most of Georgia have worsened, and EPD Director Rick Dunn announced today that elevated response is necessary. Fifty-two counties have moved from Level 1 to Level 2 Response, requiring outdoor water use restrictions. An additional 58 counties have been included in the State’s drought declaration, at the Level 1 response level.
Level 1 Drought Response generally requires public outreach and voluntary water use restrictions. Outdoor water use is allowed in the Level 1 (and counties not declared for drought response) between the hours of 4:00 pm to 10:00 am, daily.
Level 2 Drought Response adds restrictions to outdoor uses. Outdoor landscape watering is only allowed two days a week, determined by odd- and even-numbered addresses. Even-numbered addresses and properties without numbered addresses may water on Wednesday and Saturday between 4:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m. Odd-numbered addresses may water Thursday and Sunday between 4:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m.
Prohibited outdoor water uses under Level 2 Drought Response include:
• Washing hard surfaces such as streets and sidewalks
• Water for ornamental purposes, such as fountains
• The use of fire hydrants, except for firefighting and public safety
• Non-commercial washing of vehicles
• Non-commercial pressure washing
• Fundraising car washes
Baldwin is in Level 2 Drought Response. We appreciate your help in this situation.
