EPD NEWS RELEASE
Faced with worsening drought conditions in about three-fourths of the state, along with water supply concerns in some areas, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) has declared it will raise the state’s drought response to Level 2 in 52 counties and impose a Level 1 Drought Response in an additional 58 counties.

“Today’s declaration is driven by an extended period of little or no rain and increasing dryness in the impacted areas,” said EPD Director Richard Dunn.  “What’s more, there is little hope for relief as weather forecasters expect an unusually warm, dry winter across most of the state.”

This week marks the 24th week of continuous severe drought in northwest Georgia, the 22nd week for the Atlanta metro area, the 21st week in northeastern parts of the state and the 15th week in central Georgia.  In addition there is a decline in soil moisture and some streams are flowing at or below record lows set during droughts in 2007 and 2011.

During a Level 2 Drought Response, outdoor landscape watering is only allowed 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 between 4:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m.  Odd numbered addresses may water Thursday and Sunday between 4:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m.   

Prohibited outdoor water uses 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.

Water Credit/Discount Policy
This is an update to our policy concerning the issuance of credit toward water bills. It is our understanding that water leaks occur with little or no warning and these may cause financial difficulty. However, the City of Hapeville must purchase our water from the City of Atlanta as well as maintain our own infrastructure. This is accomplished with monies from our water billing. Our new policy will be as follows; Water Policy

Sewer Backflow Preventers
The City of Hapeville Water Department would like to take a moment to tell residents and businesses about sewer backflow preventers. Any structure, attached to a municipal sewer main, at or below street level, should have a sewer backflow preventer installed on their service lateral to help protect the property. This device helps to prevent the possible flooding of premises in the case of a sewer stoppage in a mainline. The Water Department strongly encourages property owners in “at risk” areas to install these devices. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Lemuel Eubanks at 404-669-2122 or by e-mail at .
