Does DeKalb Still Have Drought Restrictions?

Q: Is DeKalb County still on drought restrictions?

A: Not only DeKalb County but most of metro Atlanta is still under Drought Level 2 rules. Outdoor mature lawn and landscape watering is restricted to twice a week (even addresses on Wednesday or Saturday and odd addresses on Thursday or Sunday). Watering is only permitted before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m. However, vegetable gardens and newly installed plants and sod can be watered freely for thirty days. In addition, landscape waterfalls and fountains should be turned off. Washing your car at home and charity car washes are also forbidden. I have more details on the rules at
