ATLANTA (AP) - A spokesman for Georgia's Environmental
Protection Division says outdoor watering restrictions are likely
to stay in place even though the region's drought has eased.
EPD spokesman Kevin Chambers says despite recent rains, Lake
Lanier remains well below its full level.
The lake provides much of the water for metro Atlanta.
Dunwoody councilman Denis Shortal says he'd like to be able to
resume washing his car, at least on the same days he's allowed to
water his lawn.
Chambers says that while homeowners have little choice as to
where they water their plants, car owners can take their vehicles
to a car wash.
