U.S. Drought Monitor

Note that while the current U.S. Drought Monitor shows much of the region in drought this is not the same as “drought response level”. Drought response level is declared by Georgia Environmental Protection Division based on a variety of factors. It is the drought response level that may be accompanied by restrictions, depending on the level.

Indoor water conservation and reduced outdoor watering are encouraged especially during this time.
