State EPD declares Level 1 drought, calls for water conservation
Despite the recent rains, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division has declared a Level 1 drought response for 103 Georgia counties, including Gwinnett.
The state’s climatologist said that the current drought is primarily agricultural, but can also affect water supply. The drought declaration serves as a reminder for residents to practice water conservation in order to preserve our natural resources.
Gwinnett County follows the state’s current outdoor watering restrictions:
- Landscape and lawn irrigation is allowed before 10:00am and after 4:00pm.
- Personal food gardens may be watered at any time of day.
- New seed or sod may be watered at any time of day during the first 30 days after installation.
- There are no restrictions on the use of soaker hoses or watering with a handheld container.
The Department of Water Resources encourages water conservation year round. Visit the water conservation webpage for tips on how you can conserve water inside and outside your home.
