Atlanta Passes New Water Conservation Measures



The Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District has issued new conservation measures it says will reduce water consumption by 30 million gallons a day over the next 30 years.

Included in the measures is a requirement for water meters with point-of-use leak detection. The meters will allow residents to monitor their water usage and provide early leak detection.

"The water systems are going be looking at point of use leak detection meters that would provide information about how water is used in the house," said Pat Stevens, director of environmental planning for the Atlanta Regional Commission. "Water systems are being asked to assess their water loss and expedite the reduction of repairing leaks."

The program also includes high-efficiency toilet rebates, education to homeowners on ways to improve the efficiency of their plumbing, and enhancing waster water detection to ensure the irrigation system is operating properly.

"These are all measures that local water providers are required to implement over time," said Stevens, "They're long-range conservation measures. They're not drought measures."

The measures will be phased in over the coming years. Customers will pay for the improvements through their water bills.
