Residents advised to follow outdoor watering schedule

Posted: Updated:
CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

As temperatures rise, residents should take note of the permanent outdoor watering restrictions in place for Chatham County.

The restrictions are mandated by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division due to salt water intruding into our drinking water supply, the Floridan Aquifer.

The permanent restrictions are as follows:

  • No watering between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Even numbered and un-numbered residents, water only on:

  • Monday
  • Wednesday
  • Saturday

For odd numbered residents, water only on:

  • Tuesday
  • Thursday
  • Sunday

No watering on Friday.

Violation of the City of Savannah's Water Restrictions Ordinance may subject offenders to fines.

To report watering violations, please call 311.

If you have any questions or concerns about current water restrictions, please contact the Environmental Affairs Office at (912) 651-6943.
