waterSmartSM is here to make saving water easy with state of science information, conservation programs, and more.


The 2010 Georgia Water Stewardship Act established permanent state-wide rules for irrigation and other outdoor water uses.  For an easy guide to the rules, click here. Keep in mind that an established lawn only needs about one inch of water per week, including precipitation.  Overwatering can cause shallow root growth and plant disease.  waterSmart encourages you to only water your landscape when necessary, and be sure to water overnight or in the morning between the hours of 4 a.m. and 10 a.m. to maximize effectiveness and reduce evaporation. As always, we encourage you to conserve water both inside and outside the home, regardless of climate conditions, to save water, time and money.
