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 Utilities for complete information regarding allowable schedules for uses of water outdoors. You may refer to the Georgia Environmental Protection Division for statewide outdoor water usage.  Remember every drop counts.
