Enforcement of this ban currently lies with Fulton County and the State of Georgia. Milton, however, is moving forward with adopting its own ordinance that is consistent with the State ordinance. After adoption of this ordinance, the City will begin enforcing the watering ban. This process will take about a month.
In the meantime, the City will relay any information about offending properties to the appropriate Fulton County and State offices for enforcement. We encourage all residents to adhere to the watering ban and to protect our natural resources during this time of extreme drought.
