NOTICE:


Persistent dry conditions have prompted the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) to declare a Level 1 Drought Response in 53 counties including Pickens and Cherokee.

A Level 1 Drought Response requires that public water systems implement a public information campaign that shall include, at a minimum, public notice regarding drought conditions and drought-specific public service messages in one or more of the following ways: newspaper advertisements, bill inserts, website homepage, social media, and notices in public libraries.  Implementation of this campaign should begin within five days of receipt of this letter.

A Level 1 Drought Response public information campaign should:

  • Target all commercial and residential water use, not just outdoor watering; and
  • Emphasize what customers should do and what they may do to be good stewards of our water resources.  It should not focus on what they can’t do.
  • Examples of things to emphasize that residents should do include the following:
    • Regularly check for, and repair, leaks inside and outside their home.
    • Don’t leave the tap running. When shaving, brushing teeth, washing face, turn off the tap.
    • Only water your landscape when necessary and adjust sprinklers so only your lawn is watered and not the house, sidewalk or street.
  • For example, the following activities may be done at any time of day under a Drought Response Level 1:
    • Irrigation of personal food gardens may be done at any time of day;
    • Irrigation of new and replanted plant, seed, or turf may be done at any time of day for 30 days after installation;
    • Drip irrigation or irrigation using soaker hoses may be done at any time of day; and
    • Handwatering with a hose with automatic cutoff or handheld container may be done at any time of day.
  • General landscape watering may be done between 4pm and 10am each day.
