The following outdoor watering schedule now applies for Unincorporated Chatham County:

  • Odd-numbered addresses may use outdoor water only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays

  • Even-numbered and unnumbered addresses may use outdoor water only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays

  • The use of outdoor water is not permissible between the hours of 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

The Board of Natural Resources adopted Rules for Outdoor Water Use, Chapter 391-3-30 in May 2004. Under the rules, Georgians are required to follow schedules for outdoor water use during both non-drought periods and during periods of declared drought. The rules are consistent with Section 4 (Drought Responses) of the Georgia Drought Management Plan, which the Board adopted in 2003. The rules apply to any entity, and its customers, permitted by EPD for water withdrawal or for the operation of a public drinking water supply system.
