A WaterFirst Community

Forsyth County is proud to be a designated WaterFirst community since 2010.  Becoming a WaterFirst community demonstrates a local government's commitment to responsible water stewardship for environmental and economic benefits.  Communities that earn the WaterFirst designation are eligible for financial and other benefits from the state of Georgia.

The WaterFirst Program is a voluntary partnership between local governments, state agencies, and other organizations working together to increase the quality of life in communities through the wise management and protection of our valuable water resources.  This proactive approach to water resources requires local governments to make the connection between land use and water quality, and it requires thinking beyond political boundaries to recognize the complex relationships created by shared water resources.  

The intended result of WaterFirst is achieving excellence beyond the current water regulations in nine major categories:

  • Watershed Assessment
  • Stormwater Master Planning
  • Wastewater Treatment and Management
  • Water Supply Planning
  • Water Supply Protection
  • Water Conservation
  • Water Reclamation and Reuse
  • Educational Outreach
  • Regional Water Planning
WaterFirst is a program of the Georgia Environmental Finance Authority (GEFA) and recognizes local governments for achieving excellence in water resource management.

Current Drought Response Level: 

Non-Drought

As of December 27, 2019, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division declared a Non-Drought Schedule for Metro Atlanta (including Forsyth County), which is currently still in effect. The Non-Drought Schedule does not limit outdoor water use to specific days, but landscape watering is still prohibited between 10 AM and 4 PM daily. This is done to limit evaporation during the warmest part of the day.  All citizens are urged to be good stewards of our water resources and practice water conservation.
