Georgia is now operating under the Georgia Water Stewardship Act. As far as pressure washing your house or washing your car, that's only allowed on the odd/even system that's been in place for the past few years.
But outdoor watering is now allowed for any living plants. Lorie Farkas with WG&L said, "There are no days. You can water any day you choose. There's no even/odd system, but you can only water between 4 PM and 10 AM. So you can water any day of the week outside green things like flowers, plants, sod, grass, but it must be between 4 PM and 10 AM the next morning."
Outdoor water use for any purpose other than watering of plants is still restricted to the odd/even watering schedule. Here it is again:
Odd-numbered addresses can water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
Even-numbered and unnumbered addresses are allowed to water on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
