Tifton - - With a statewide drought in effect, we all should do our part to help conserve water. One South Georgia college is doing it voluntarily.

Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College has its own water supply from wells on campus, yet they are voluntarily showing their support of water conservation efforts.

During the summer session, very few students stay on campus so there will be less water usage in the dorms, but the college is also taking some extra steps to conserve.  

"This summer we've cut back by not irrigating some of the lawns as much, we've cut back to restricted use on some of the hay fields on the farm. So these are some of the things were doing to cut back and join this drought crisis," says Mike Chason.

He hopes the drought ends before the majority of students return to school in August. But if it doesn't, he says the school may have to take extra measures to conserve when the Fall semester begins.
