Voluntary Water Conservation


Public Notice
Voluntary Water Conservation

October 2, 2019


Effective immediately, the City of Barnesville is asking residents to reduce water consumption. Hot temperatures and the lack of rain have created increased demands on our water system.


The voluntary water restriction is a precaution to keep water stored in our reservoir at an acceptable level for critical activities such as fire fighting, drinking and cooking. 


Until further notice, residents are asked to reduce or postpone all non-essential water use including:

  • Watering lawns, gardens and trees
  • Washing cars
  • Cleaning exterior of houses or driveways with water

All water conservation measures will help decrease the demand on the City’s water system.
