ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  People have flooded Water, Gas, and Light with calls asking questions about the rules.

On June 11th, Georgia's Environmental Protection Division relaxed the water restrictions. You can now water any time of day. But you still can't water every day.

Even numbered addresses can water on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.

Odd numbered addresses can water on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. 

"When people are holding car washes which they now can do because we have no hour restrictions they still have to observe the address of the business they're going to have it so that's important so really it would have to be an even address if you want to do it on Saturday," said WG&L Assistant General Manager Lorie Farkas.

On Monday alone, Water, Gas, and Light took 113 calls from people confused about the restrictions.

Water officials still request you use a soaker hose and refrain from watering between 10 AM and 4 PM, but that's only a suggestion.
