Rain sensors now required in Sandy Springs

Residents and business owners in Sandy Springs must now have rain sensors on all new irrigation systems.

A recently approved local law requiring rain sensor shut-offs and/or freeze sensors is designed to encourage water conservation and help the city with its water-shortage measures.

The sensors are required on all new irrigation systems, except for golf courses or any other systems that do not rely on public water.
