ATLANTA — A spokesman for Georgia's Environmental Protection Division says outdoor watering restrictions are likely to stay in place even though the region's drought has eased.

EPD spokesman Kevin Chambers says despite recent rains, Lake Lanier remains well below its full level. The lake provides much of the water for metro Atlanta.
