Water efficiency and conservation are essential to protect the current and future water supply for Fulton County and our region. The Department of Public Works has a number of programs available to help customers save water and money including a rebate program to replace old toilets with new, high-efficiency models. For more information, check out this link where you’ll find eligibility info and a link to apply. 

Residential and Commercial customers can find helpful guides for evaluating and reducing water use on our Water Assessment page.


Rain Barrel Workshop & Pickup Event

Spring has sprung and as our gardens begin growing, so can our water bills. If you’d like to reduce your outdoor water use and tame the runoff from those April showers, join us for an upcoming rain barrel workshop. Each workshop will have a Thursday evening virtual presentation followed by a Saturday morning curbside pickup of your barrel and installation kit. These workshops are free to all Fulton County residents, but space is limited and pre-registration is required. See the event flyers for dates, locations, and registration details for each workshop.

 


HOUSEHOLD WATER CONSERVATION

The best method for determining whether you have a water leak in your home is to follow this four step procedure;

  1. Turn off all water around the house including outside spigots.
  2. Look at the leak indicator (triangle) on your meter register.
  3. If the leak indicator is moving, water is running somewhere in your system.
  4. Check all toilets and inside and outside faucets for leaks.

If you cannot account for the running water by sinks, toilet, faucets, humidifier, automatic ice maker or water softener, you have a leak, and further investigation is recommended. 90% of all leaks in residential plumbing systems are found in the toilet tank.
