Monday, May 8th at the Calhoun City Council meeting:
First reading for amendments to the Calhoun Utility Rate Resolution. Changes include a 14% rate increase for outside the city water and sewer rates, a 5% wholesale accounts increase, and includes that all water meters are subject to the appropriate monthly minimum charges.
Due to the persistent drought, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) has revised the current drought response to a Level 1 Drought declaration for Georgia (see Map). No additional watering restrictions have been issued above those already in place for the past several years. The City of Calhoun Water System does not have any type of water supply shortage!
Outdoor watering as per the existing guidelines may continue under the Level 1 declaration. The existing outdoor restrictions and the Georgia Drought Response Map can be found below:
