Albany- Melvin and Margaret Durham have green thumbs. Their yard is the envy of the neighborhood. From flowers to vegetables, they grow it all.
Margaret Durham says, "We are yard people and we love to do the yard." New voluntary water restrictions ask Georgians with Odd-Numbered Addresses to water only on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Residents with Even-numbered addresses are asked to water on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
The Durham's say new restrictions match their current watering patterns. Melvin adds, "We don't mind doing anything that we need to do to help with the environment. I really don't think it would bother us because we don't water a whole lot anyway."
The Durham's say during the drought they had to water their yard every other day. Now with more rain, they water about three times a week. Margaret Durham says, "We have a sprinkler system, and we couldn't do it without that. It waters three times a week, about thirty minutes on each cycle.
The Environmental Protection Division says after one year, they may try to impose mandatory restrictions, but for now it's up to you to voluntarily obey, and the Durham's say they will.
The voluntary water restrictions will begin on June 1. Local governments still have the option of imposing their own outdoor water use restrictions.
