Drought Information

On December 27th, 2019, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) ended its Level 1 Drought Response in 103 counties as a result of recent rainfall and improving conditions. The decision means that Cobb County will return to a non-drought water use schedule. To determine the appropriate level of drought response, EPD considers several factors including precipitation, stream flows, groundwater, reservoir levels, short-term climate predictions and soil moisture. EPD monitors and produces publicly available reports on these conditions on a monthly basis. More information can be found in the links below:
