The Georgia Department of Natural Resources Board adopted a new drought management rule in 2015 which updated outdoor watering restriction.
Forsyth County is on a Non-Drought Water Schedule
March 8, 2018 - Georgia EPD drops Level 1 Drought Response for Metro Atlanta, including Forsyth County, as Lake Lanier reaches full pool. Forsyth County is now on a non-drought water use schedule. This water schedule allows all types of water use, but landscape water only before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m. 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.
New Landscape Exemption Forms are not required when non-drought restrictions are in place.
