    Conservation is a way of life, not just a temporary response to a critical situation.

    Simply put, fresh water is limited. Ever increasing populations are putting a strain on this precious resource. See what you can do to maximize your conservation efforts.



    The Environmental Protection Division has made an allowance for newly installed landscaping. Effective March 15, 2008, any person or entity watering newly installed landscaping must obtain a certificate from the Georgia Center for Urban Agriculture.
