Water restrictions eased for some of south Georgia

May 6, 2008

Albany-  Watering restrictions are about to be relaxed for some of you.

Tuesday afternoon, Georgia environmental officials announced changes to the state rules. The Environmental Protection Division will downgrade restrictions in part of south Georgia starting May 12th.

The changes only apply south of Dougherty County. Counties even with Dougherty and northward remain under level two restrictions.

That means you can only water from midnight to 10:00 a.m. on the odd/even day schedule. Areas south of there, including Mitchell, Colquitt, and Lowndes Counties will be under level one restrictions.

They still have to abide by the odd/even schedule, but they can water from midnight to 10:00 a.m. and from 4:00 p.m. to midnight. No part of the state is classified in exceptional drought any more, but North Georgia remains in an extreme or severe drought.
