Georgia EPD Presses For Metro Atlanta Water Conservation To Combat Drought

Georgia EPD Presses For Metro Atlanta Water Conservation To Combat Drought

May 2, 2017

Faced with a stubborn drought and the warmest April on record in Atlanta, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) is urging metro Atlantans to conserve water and follow the state’s outdoor water use schedules.

“With Lake Lanier showing only slight improvement after recent rainfall it’s more important than ever for citizens to be good stewards of our water supply,” said EPD Director Richard Dunn. “The lake remains eight feet below its full water level. Coupled with the fact that it is not unusual during a drought for Lanier to drop six feet or more over the summer, it is critical that metro Atlantans follow a Level 2 Drought Response, which allows reasonable outdoor water use while still saving water.”

During a Level 2 Drought Response, outdoor landscape watering is allowed up to two days a week, determined by odd and even-numbered addresses. Even-numbered addresses and properties without numbered addresses may water on Wednesday and Saturday before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m. Odd-numbered addresses may water Thursday and Sunday before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m.

The Level 2 Drought Response has been in place since November in the following 12 counties: Cobb, Coweta, Dekalb, Douglas, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Habersham, Hall, Lumpkin, Paulding and White counties. These are counties that depend on Lake Lanier and the Chattahoochee River for water supply.

“Lake Lanier is a large reservoir fed by relatively small streams,” added EPD Director Dunn. “Recent rains have provided short-term relief for your landscape, but not enough rainfall to provide significant improvement to Lake Lanier.”

Prohibited outdoor water uses under a Level 2 Drought Response include:

  • Washing hard surfaces such as streets and sidewalks.
  • Water for ornamental purposes, such as fountains.
  • The use of fire hydrants, except for firefighting and public safety.
  • Non-commercial washing of vehicles.
  • Non-commercial pressure washing.
  • Fundraising car washes.

The following activities are allowed under a Level 2 Drought Response:

  • Irrigation of new and replanted plant, seed, or turf may be done at any time of day for 30 days after installation.
  • Irrigation of personal food gardens may be done at any time of day.
  • Drip irrigation or irrigation using soaker hoses may be done at any time of day and hand-watering with a hose with automatic cutoff or handheld container may be done at any time of day.
  • General landscape watering may be done after 4 p.m. and before 10 a.m. on the designated days.

EPD closely monitors a number of drought indicators including streamflows, reservoir levels, groundwater, short-term climate predictions and water supply conditions. Should conditions deteriorate further, a Level 3 Drought Response would have to be considered. A Level 3 Drought Response prohibits most types of outdoor water use, including general landscape watering.

Public Notice: EXCESS FLOW VALVES

Published: March 20, 2017

Excess Flow Valves (EFVs) are mechanical shut-off devices that can be installed in the natural gas pipe running to the gas meter at your property (the “service line”).  An EFV is designed to shut off most of the flow of natural gas automatically if the service line breaks, for example, by an excavation accident. Stopping the flow of gas from a broken service line significantly reduces the risk of natural gas fire, explosion, personal injury and/or property damage.

You may request that we install an excess flow valve on the service line to your property.

If you notify us that you want an EFV, we will contact you to discuss your specific situation of installation and maintenance.  EFVs cannot be installed on some service lines due to high gas flow, low pressure or other factors. If you request an EFV, we will inform you if your service line cannot accommodate an EFV.

If an EFV can be installed on your service line and you choose to have this done, we will set up a mutually agreeable date when we will install an EFV on your service line.

You will need to request and pay $2,000 to cover the cost of installing the EFV.

To submit a request or if you have questions, please call the

City of Lawrenceville Gas Department at 770.963.3332.

 Lawrenceville Appoints Members to Financial Review Citizens Committee

15 Community Leaders Named to Newly Formed Committee

 

LAWRENCEVILLE (GWINNETT/METRO ATLANTA) GA – March 7, 2017

The City of Lawrenceville has appointed members to serve on the community’s newly formed Financial Review Citizens Committee.  Members named to the community at last night’s Council meeting included Michael Bolitz, Carla Crowe, Susan Sikes Davis, John Greenway, Liz Hartnett, Ryan Jensen, Glenn Martin, Jason Powell, Andres Rubio, Linda Stephens, Michael Thomas, Ann Vines, Jeff Wages, Sandra Webb and Carolyn Wright. The purpose of this committee is to educate citizens, business owners, and community leaders on the financial operations of the City and ultimately to encourage input into budgetary process in order to create better transparency with the public.

Chuck Warbington, City Manager, shared, “Lawrenceville has an operating budget of over $170 Million – the second largest municipal budget in Metro Atlanta, second only to Atlanta. A budget that large makes it not only needful but imperative to maintain transparency and communication with our residents and businesses as we work collaboratively with them to ensure proper investment and a focus on strategic priorities as set by the Lawrenceville community.”

The Committee comprises 15 members — five residents, five business representatives and five community leaders. Committee Members will meet four times in the next two months and may be called upon to attend work sessions as follows:

2017/2018 Budget Cycle

  • Overview Meetings with Staff Departments (Required)

2018/2019 Budget Cycle

  • Citizen Committee Presentations with Staff Budgets – Mar, Apr & May 2018
  • Recommendations to Council – Jun 2018
