The Act requires local governments to obtain approval from the Environmental Protection Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources before imposing water restrictions that are more stringent than those imposed by the state, authorizes the Environmental Protection Division to exempt local governments from nonstatutory restrictions imposed by the state, and prohibits, with limitations, restrictions against filling of swimming pools. The Act seeks to standardize water restrictions across the state and protect the green industry and swimming pool industry from unnecessarily stringent restrictions imposed by local governments.
