Statewide water ban ends

 

 

January 15, 2003

Albany - After 2.5 years of water restrictions, Georgia finally lifts its watering ban. The Environmental Protection Division ended water restrictions after recent rains.

Albany is expected to lift its ban by the end of the week. But Lorie Farkas, with WG&L, says you still shouldn't waste water.

The drought caused the EPD to limit outdoor watering to every other day since June 2000.
