Water conservation is a critical element of ensuring that our customers have access to water when they need it, now and in the future.
The BGJWSC has adopted rules mandated by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Environmental Protection Division, guiding outdoor water use.
Currently, Glynn County is under Declared Drought Level Two. As a result, the following restrictions apply:
• Outdoor water use is allowed on scheduled days between midnight and 10 a.m.
• Scheduled days for odd-numbered addresses are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
• Scheduled days for even-numbered addresses are Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
The following uses are prohibited:
• Using hydrants for any purpose other than firefighting, public health, safety or flushing.
• Washing hard surfaces such as streets, gutters, sidewalks and driveways, except when necessary for public health and safety.

Lead and Copper Sample Testing To Be Completed
Lead and copper is not present in our water distribution network. However, the impact of older homes having used lead-fused service lines and internal plumbing could present a potential health hazard to you and your family. The United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974 requires testing to ensure that lead and copper on private plumbing is not leaching into a customer’s drinking water. Homes built from 1983 to 1988 are the focus of the study as plumbing construction standards were more lenient during that time period.
For our customer’s safety, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division of the Department of Natural Resources actively enforces a regular end-use lead and copper testing program in compliance with the EPA standards…. –READ MORE–
