Albany State University is revamping its water conservation program because of the extreme drought.

The program was first implemented in 2007 during the last major statewide drought. It helped reduce water use on campus by 23% since then, but campus leaders are putting a renewed focus on conservation now.

Albany State has stopped washing its cars and isn't doing any outdoor watering except on athletic fields.

They also plan to hand out brochures around campus to remind students and faculty to do their part to conserve water.
