Title: Georgia Water Restrictions - Update on GA Water Ban

Everyone should stay updated on the most recent watering restrictions for their City or County within the state of Georgia. Much of  the Northern portion of the State of Georgia is now at a Level 4 Drought, which means All Outdoor Watering is Banned. However, most people do not realize is that they can still have their home/business pressure washed if it is done by a professional pressure washing company. In some cities the washing of hard surfaces is banned, such as driveways, walkways, or sidewalks; but to have your home or business pressure washed is still allowed in most places. Since updates are available online, I am going to provide you with a list of helpful links so you can stay updated and aware of the water restrictions where you live. 

If people are not aware it will create a dominoe effect on our whole economy and impact it in a negative way.  Many landscapers are out of business and have been laying off workers that is has caused the food closets to be strained already. Many of the small business owners that use water in their daily business are hurting. This includes not only the Landscapers, but also the Pressure Washing businesses, car washes, and any other business that use water in their daily business. This means they will be spending less money, facing bills they may not be able to pay, possibly facing foreclosures, making the already high foreclosure rate go up, and more.

Let's all help keep the businesses in business!  

by the way, did you know that Pressure Washing uses about 80% less water than a garden hose?

I was just speaking to someone in Georgia who mentioned the water restrictions, but I didn't realize how serious it was!  Living in Las Vegas, we always have watering restrictions regarding hours we can water, how and where we can wash our cars, and what days of the week we can water, and not to mention that the water district actually gives rebates to people who remove grass and replace it with desert landscaping.  You don't get the rebate if you replace it with concrete -because that just heats the valley up more.

I hope you get some good rain soon!  Best of luck to you.

Denise, Thank you for that comment. WoW!

 I didn't realize that Vegas has watering restrictions now, thanks for the update. I was born and raised in Vegas and still I have not adapted to all this rain that we usually have in Georgia, even though I've been living here just as long now.  So, I was actually enjoying the weather and at first couldn't understand what a big deal it was. It was so nice without all the icky sticky humidity. But I didn't realize that we could actually run out of water! Now it's a scary thought. Plus it's hurting the business owners, and in return the whole economy. 

Thanks,

Lorrie Thomas

Yes, we are in a desert and with nearly 2 million people in Las Vegas, we are thinking CONSERVATION.  New homes now feature "Zyrascape" - desert friendly landscape.  Sometimes they even have a kidney-bean shaped patch of artificial grass!  Astro-turf in our front yards!

I would have never thought that GEORGIA - land of plantations and humidity, would have WATER problems!  Do they fine the violators if they are caught watering?  We have policing of water violations and you can get a ticket!

It's gotten so bad, they are making fountains out of chocolate here.  Ha ha!

Whether the current drought is here to stay, or just a current problem; as long as populations continue to grow, droughts will continue to be a serious problem.  The most effective action that we can take is to install artificial grass.  I installed fake grass in my front yard almost a year ago.  It looks great, and requires no maintenance, and no water.  You won't be disappointed.  Fire your gardener, and install artificial grass!

Artificial turf Looks and feels like real grass for less than real grass! it provides oxygen, filter rainwater or cool the air.

How will this play out with residents like the repercussions? I was reading an article that stated restrictions like no car wash after a time, no bird baths, no lawn watering and I bumped into a solution for car wash. Has anyone ever head of a <a href="http://www.rejuvenateauto.com/car-wash-waterless.php">waterless car wash</a>?
