Grovetown issues water restriction

Grovetown officials imposed a drought-level outdoor watering restriction on residents because of construction on the city's water system.

The city is operating on two of the its three water storage tanks because the third was dismantled to make way for a new larger one as part of an ongoing water system upgrades, according to Michael Woods, Public Works director.

Residents are allowed to water outdoors from midnight to 10 a.m. on scheduled days. Those with odd numbered address can water on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Residents with even-umbered addresses can water on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. No outdoor watering is allowed on Monday.

The restriction will continue until further notice.
