State of Georgia Water Restrictions:

Tift County has banned all outdoor water use, except for those uses which asre allowed by the state.

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

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

No one is allowed to water on Fridays. The new rule also states that you can only water from midnight until 10AM, on YOUR day.

Some businesses are exempt from the water restrictions, such as pressure washing, landscapers watering freshly sodded grass, car washes, and others which depend on water for their livlihood.

Vegetable gardens can be watered without restriction, and those who have their own well are also exempt.
