Drought Status

Drought Status

Fulton County is currently in non-drought status. Residents must still adhere to the statewide, year-round watering schedule which requires landscape watering to be done before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m., to prevent water loss from evaporation. For more information about the current drought status or the year-round watering schedule contact Public Works at 404.612.7400.

Residents are encouraged to be mindful of their water use at all times, especially during drought conditions.

Fulton County has a Water Waste Ordinance in place to prevent water loss by inefficient irrigation or other excessive use. Water efficiency is always essential to protect the current and future water supply for Fulton County and the region. The Department of Public Works has information and programs available for its water customers who would like to conserve water and save money, including rebate programs for replacing older toilets or installing a smart leak detector.
