The Environmental Protection Division of Georgia has issued a Level 1 Drought Declaration.  What does that mean to you?  In efforts to conserve water this notice is to share with you examples of ways to limit water use.

-Regularly check for, and repair, leaks inside and outside of your home.

-Don’t leave the tap running.  When shaving, brushing teeth, washing face, turn off the faucet.

-Only water your landscape when necessary and adjust sprinklers so only your lawn is watered and not the house, sidewalk or street.

The following activities may be done at any time of day under a Drought Response

Level 1:

-Irrigation of personal food gardens may be done at any time of day.

-Irrigation of new and replanted plant, seed, or turf may be done at any time of day for 30 days after installation.

-Drip irrigation or irrigation using soaker hoses may be done at any time of day; and hand watering with a hose with automatic cutoff or handheld container may be done at any time of day.

-General landscape watering may be done between 4PM and 10AM each day.
