Water restrictions statewide, tighter in Walthourville
Placeholder Image
The director of the Georgia Environmental Protection Division has declared a level two drought response across the state and will require all Georgians to follow a more stringent outdoor water-use schedule.
A level two drought declaration limits outdoor water use to mornings only. The new outdoor watering schedules statewide are as follows:
• Odd numbered addresses may water from midnight to 10 a.m. Tuesdays, Thursday and Sundays.
• Even numbered and unnumbered addresses may water from midnight to 10 a.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.

The city of Walthourville is facing additional restrictions because it has surpassed its water allotments for the past several months.
No outside water use is allowed.
Violators are subject to $250 fines and fees, and could have their water service disconnected.
