On September 9, 2016, Georgia’s Environmental Protection Division declared a Level 1 drought response across 53 counties, including Cobb County. This declaration requires water providers to educate the public about drought conditions and water conservation.

Marietta Power and Water would like to ask its customers to take reasonable measures to be responsible stewards of water and to be prepared for the possibility this is a long-term drought. Additionally, it is important to remember that Georgia has a permanent year-round outdoor watering restrictions which limits outdoor watering to the hours between 4 p.m. and 10 a.m. to avoid the hottest part of the day when more evaporation occurs.
