City of Rincon Outdoor Watering Restrictions

The Georgia Drought Management Plan, effective March 26, 2003, calls for year-round outdoor water conservation practices whether we are in times of drought or not– including permanent outdoor water schedule in Georgia.  The restrictions are mandated by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (GA EPD) due to salt water intruding into our drinking water supply, the Floridian Aquifer. Several local governments have decided to keep more restrictive schedules in place. More information is available at www.conservewatergeorgia.net
