“Unnecessary” water use is banned

Until further notice all unnecessary outdoor water use is banned within city limits. This includes washing cars, watering the lawn, etc.

Officials of the Department of Watershed Management have instituted restrictions on all unnecessary water use; including watering lawns, washing cars and similar activities; until further notice. Officials believe that explosive growth in the metropolitan Atlanta area and dry weather conditions are affecting water supplies across the metro area. “We are concerned about our current and future water use,” said Commissioner Rob Hunter. “And we are taking proactive steps to ensure a sufficient supply of water for all our customers.” Recent water releases from Lake Lanier and a looming drought mean additional stress on water supplies, according to Department officials, who are urging residents to institute immediate water-conservation measures in their homes and businesses.

Conserve well.

    How is it we go from no restrictions to a no usage restriction?

    You’d think you could just start May off with every other day watering instead of this. At least I didn’t put in a new lawn.

    Good. My neighbor was watering his lawn while it was raining today. I doubt he’ll even give a damn about the restrictions.
