What Is Stormwater?
Stormwater is water that runs off roofs, driveways, and streets into our storm drains. What most people do not realize is that in the journey from the sky to streets to streams, stormwater picks up chemicals and pollutants that can contaminate our waterways.

Complies with the federally mandated National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit.

Develops and implements watershed management plans for the 17 watersheds in Athens-Clarke County.
Oversees construction site stormwater runoff control through reviewing of site plans, site inspections, and enforcement of erosion prevention practices.
