Exemption for Newly Installed Plantings/Landscaping
The irrigation of new plants and seed, or turf in landscapes, golf courses, or sports turf fields during installation and for a period of 30 days immediately following the date of installation shall be allowed under Georgia EPD Drought Management regulations. However, Forsyth County requires a Landscape Exemption Form for newly planted landscaping during the 30 day period.
This form must be completed and faxed (770-781-2163) or brought by in person to the Forsyth County Water and Sewer Department (110 East Main St., Suite 150, Cumming GA 30040) before the exemption will be permitted.
Note: Landscape Exemption Forms are not required when Non-Drought restrictions are in place.
