Tift County imposes water use ban

May 25, 2007

Tifton  --  Tift County official have moved the city to a Level IV Drought situation, effective immediately. This means that all outdoor water use is curtailed until further notice, except those water uses that are exempted by the state.

The Tifton Tift County Utilities Department ordered its more than 10,000 customers to follow Drought Response Level Four restrictions.   That's as strict as it gets.

Public water customers in Tift County can't water their lawns or their flowers or wash their cars at all.
   
The entire state is under Level Two restrictions.  That means if you live at an even-numbered address, you can water on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.


Odd addresses can water on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays but only from midnight until 10:00AM

There are some exemptions in the regulations. Here are the water use rules set up by the environmental Protection Division of the Georgia department of natural Resource.
