Georgia DOT urges homeowners to turn off sprinklers at night


December 11, 2013
ATLANTA — As temperatures continue to drop, the Georgia Department of Transportation (DOT) would like to remind the community to turn off sprinkler systems with automatic timers set to run overnight.

"Every winter, we have icing issues due to automatically timed sprinkler systems that are left on overnight in freezing temperatures," said Rachel Brown, DOT district engineer.

"They can create a very hazardous condition for motorists the next morning."

Automatic sprinkler systems are often timed to operate at night, and when spray from the sprinkler is blown onto the road or water drains onto the road, black ice is formed.
