Water restrictions remain in effect

July 20, 2007

Albany-- Even though South Georgia has seen a bit more rain of recent, it has not done enough to break the level two drought situation or to halt water restrictions. As a reminder, odd-numbered addresses can only water on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays Even-numbered on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. No one can water on Fridays, and on your assigned day you can only water from midnight to ten a.m. Laurie Farkas with Albany Water Gas and light says they appreciate the efforts citizens are making to conserve water.

"I just think everybody needs to keep doing what they are doing, they are doing a great job. The rain has been such a blessing, there is just a difference between god's rain and the rain we turn on in our taps. If you look at yards, you can see it takes one good rain for everything to green up. So we appreciate everyone adhering to what the rules are" said WG&L Assistant General Manager Lorie Farkas.

The watering ban does not apply to businesses who rely on water such as car washes, But those fundraiser car washes you often see on the weekends are in violation.
