U.S. Drought Monitor
Although the U.S. Drought Monitor Map below shows that drought conditions for the metro area are improving, we are still in a Level 2 Drought Response. Even with the recent rainfall, we are still making up for the deficit in average rainfall from last year, and Lake Lanier is still well below full pool. We must continue to do our part to conserve water and follow the outdoor water use restrictions set by GA Environmental Protection Division.
