Water restrictions for south GA could change

March 20, 2008

Albany-  Recent rain could change Georgia's water restrictions. Right now, you can only water midnight to 10:00 a.m depending on your address, Monday, Wednesday, Saturday or Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday.

The first week of April, state officials are expected to review the policy and set a new standard for the next several months. Water officials in south Georgia expect hour restrictions may be eased.

"We'll just have to wait and see what the state tells us in a week or so, but we want people to continue to observe the level two drought conditions at this point," said Lorie Farkas, W,G,& L Assistant General Manager of Customer Affairs.

Water, Gas, and Light is getting a lot of questions from non-profit agencies who what to hold weekend car washes. That still falls under the restrictions, but groups can get information about waterless car washes from WG&L.

Businesses that use water like a car wash and those who pull from private wells in the city to water their lawns are exempt from the restrictions.
