Athens-Clarke County Outdoor Watering Schedule

Due to improved conditions Athens-Clarke County has eased watering restrictions and the non-drought outdoor water use schedule is in effect. You may visit Athens-Clarke County Public Works for complete information regarding allowable schedules for uses of water outdoors. Some areas of Georgia are still in level 1 drought.  Please refer to the Environmental Protection Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources for restriction in those counties.  Remember every drop counts.
