Water Restriction Information

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources Board adopted a new drought management rule in 2015 which updated outdoor watering restriction.

 Level 1 Drought Response for Forsyth County 

September 7, 2017 - Today the Georgia EPD eased Drought Level 2 to Drought Level 1 for 12 counties including Forsyth County.  Under Drought Level 1 all type of outdoor water use are allowed, but landscape watering only before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m. daily.  This is done to limit evaporation during the warmest part of the day.
