Outdoor Watering Schedule

The current outdoor water use schedule, as designated by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) of the Department of Natural Resources, allows MWA customers to use water outdoors daily from 4:00 PM until 10:00 AM.

There are certain types of water use that are allowed all the time:

  • Irrigation of personal food gardens
  • Irrigation of new and replanted plant, seed, or turf in landscapes, golf courses, or sports turf fields, during installation and for a period of 30 days immediately following the date of installation
  • Drip irrigation using soaker hoses
  • Hand watering with a hose, which has an automatic cutoff or hand-held container
  • Installation, maintenance, or calibration of irrigation systems

For more information, including a list of all available exemptions, see EPD's Outdoor Water Use Information.

We want you to use water wisely, and MWA has tips for customers on how to irrigate efficiently.
