On September 9, 2016, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division declared a Level 1 drought response for 53 Georgia counties, including Gwinnett. In response to this declaration, Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources would like to remind residents of current watering restrictions, as well as other ways to conserve water.
Gwinnett County follows the state’s permanent year-round outdoor watering restrictions, which allows landscape and lawn irrigation any day of the week, between the hours of 4:00pm. and 10:00am. Currently, all other outdoor water use is allowed any day, any time. Click here for Frequently Asked Questions about the current guidelines for Outdoor Water Use.
Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources encourages water conservation year round and provides information on our website to help residents conserve water. Click here to visit our Conservation Page.
We offer water conservation workshops, and provide residents with home conservation and toilet leak detection kits.
Our Water on Wheels initiative is an in-classroom program that travels to Gwinnett County schools. Students participate in engaging hands-on lessons that teach the importance of water conservation and foster attitudes that will inspire life-long water efficient behaviors. Teachers are invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org to have Water on Wheels visit your classroom.
Water Science with Wade is our professionally produced video series for 3rd, 4th and 6th graders. The videos use humor, animated graphics and live action to engage students and teach the importance of protecting and conserving our water resources. Click here to view the videos.
