Steps to conserve water
Water resources from around the entire state are suffering, according to James Brown, Newton County water resources director.
Brown participated in a conference call with the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) Wednesday, in which different agencies shared data on the state’s current rain shortfall.
All agencies are experiencing low pools in their reservoirs with little sign of rain on the wall.
“We are keeping close monitor with the state and the reservoirs that we have here to make sure we’re doing our best, and come up with the most efficient ways to save as much water as we can” Brown said.
Lack of rainfall and high temperatures have led to the reservoir at Lake Varner, and other resevoirs throughout the state to see water shortages.
