History

Effective June 1, 1999 the City of Atlanta instituted and enhanced the building permit application review process. The expanded process focuses on performing an improved evaluation of each type of proposed development as outlined in the building permit application process. A development is defined as “any building that will add new flow to the sewer system”.

The purpose of the enhanced process is to determine if increased flow from new development will exceed the capacity of the City of Atlanta’s existing wastewater infrastructure. This expanded evaluation process is authorized by city ordinance and is required by the Capacity Certification Program requirements under the First Amended Consent Decree Amendments negotiated with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the State of Georgia Department of Natural Resources Environmental Protection Division.
