COMMUNITY NEWS

Little Things Can Enhance Water Quality

Stormwater runoff containing excessive amounts of pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers is a significant threat to the quality of our water.  With the onset of the lawn maintenance season, there are several ways to protect the water quality in our lakes and streams:

ü  Limit the use of fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides.

ü  Do not apply fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides if heavy rain is predicted.

ü  Rather than broadcasting herbicides, spot treat only those areas that contain weeds.

ü  Maintain a small lawn and keep the rest of your property or yard in a natural, state with trees and other native vegetation that require little or no fertilizer.

ü  Properly dispose any unused pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. NEVER dump unused fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides down a storm drain.

Summer Heat Safety

The Red Cross provides the following list to help keep you and your family stay safe during the hot days of summer. 

  • Never leave children or pets alone in enclosed vehicles.  This is illegal in Georgia because cars heat up extremely fast, endangering the life of children and pets.  You could also receive a broken window in addition to a citation. 
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol.
  • Eat small meals and eat more often.
  • Avoid extreme temperature changes.
  • Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing. Avoid dark colors because they absorb the sun’s rays.
  • Slow down, stay indoors, and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day.
  • Postpone outdoor games and activities during extreme heat alerts.
  • Use a buddy system when working in excessive heat.
  • Take frequent breaks if you must work outdoors.
  • Check on family, friends, and neighbors who do not have air conditioning, who spend much of their time alone, or who are more likely to be affected by the heat.
  • Check on your animals frequently to ensure that they are not suffering from the heat.


Rules to Remember as Fireworks Season Approaches

Georgia’s Fireworks Law allows people to launch fireworks only on private property they own (or have the owner’s permission to use) between 10:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. any day of the year.  Consumer fireworks must stop by midnight on July 4.  Please be courteous to neighbors when using consumer fireworks. 

Additional state law restrictions:

  • No consumer fireworks can be used in any public road or right-of-way.
  • No consumer fireworks are allowed in any public park. 
  • No person can use fireworks while impaired by drugs or alcohol.
  • Only those 18 and older can ignite or possess consumer fireworks (16 and 17 year olds may possess or transport if working for a licensed fireworks distributer). 

Please report the illegal use of consumer fireworks to the non-emergency number for Fayette County Communications (770-461-HELP).


Fayette Water Guardians Seek Volunteers for Lake Peachtree Cleanup on June 19

The Fayette Water Guardians volunteer group will be taking on Lake Peachtree for cleanup on Saturday, June 19.  Unlike their other lake cleanups, this time they are seeking more volunteers without kayaks or canoes since the lake level will still be low for the spillway construction (small jon boats needed to help bring full trash bags back to the boat docks).  Volunteers will meet at Battery Way Park, 110 Battery Way, at 8:00 a.m. to pick up trash on the lake banks and park grounds.  The County government will supply bottled water, trash bags, and trash grabbers.  Sign up by June 11 to receive a free Water Guardians t-shirt as well. A liability waiver is required.  Register at WaterGuardians@fayettecountyga.gov with name, daytime phone number, contact email address, and t-shirt size.
