Water efficiency and conservation are essential to protect the current and future water supply for Fulton County and our region. The Department of Public Works has a number of programs available to help customers save water and money including a rebate program to replace old toilets with new, high-efficiency models. For more information, check out this link where you’ll find eligibility info and a link to apply. 


Fulton County Public Works will be partnering with City of Sandy Springs Parks and Recreation to give away rain barrels and installation kits to Fulton County residents on Saturday, August 8. Residents can click here to watch our step-by-step installation video, then register online to reserve a barrel. See the event flyer for full details.

Once you are ready to install your rain barrel, click here for installation instructions.

The best method for determining whether you have a water leak in your home is to follow this four step procedure;

  1. Turn off all water around the house including outside spigots.
  2. Look at the leak indicator (triangle) on your meter register.
  3. If the leak indicator is moving, water is running somewhere in your system.
  4. Check all toilets and inside and outside faucets for leaks.

If you cannot account for the running water by sinks, toilet, faucets, humidifier, automatic ice maker or water softener, you have a leak, and further investigation is recommended. 90% of all leaks in residential plumbing systems are found in the toilet tank.
