Stormwater Utility Planning Process

The City must adopt a Stormwater Ordinance establishing standards for keeping stormwater clean. Best Management Practices (BMPs) for specific areas such as residential, retail, industrial, and construction activities will be studied, developed, and implemented. In combination, these programs will reduce stormwater pollution. These activities support the goal of the City to minimize the pollutants from the City storm drain system entering the Chattahoochee and Ocmulgee River Basins.

Anticipated Services of the Stormwater Utility include, but are not limited to the following:

The stormwater utility will provide a dedicated revenue source for stormwater management. The stormwater utility will operate similarly to water or sewer charges which are funded through service fees and administered separately from the general fund ensuring stable and adequate support for these services.
