Roll Out the Barrels is an annual event that raises awareness of stormwater runoff, water pollution, and water conservation, all while promoting local art and supporting environmental education. Local artists turn rain barrels into beautiful pieces of functional art to be auctioned off in support of the Athens Green School Program, an initiative to ensure environmental education is taught in the classroom.
The seventh annual Roll Out the Barrels will take place on Thursday, May 25 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Terrapin Beer Co. Visit rolloutthebarrels.org for more information, and follow @ACCStormwater on Facebook for previews of this year's barrels.
Together, we can stop water pollution.
The Stormwater Management Program is dedicated to protecting Athens-Clarke County water from the moment it runs off our streets to the moment it reaches our streams. Our program operates under the NPDES General Permit for Phase II Stormwater Discharges. This permit lays out requirements necessary to properly manage stormwater (non-point source pollution) and pollutant discharges to our waters.
Questions about your Stormwater Utility Bill?
The Stormwater Management Program is in the process of updating our stormwater utility billing information. The stormwater utility fee is based on the amount of impervious surface on each property, which is calculated using aerial images of the county. ACC Stormwater is using the newest aerial images to update the impervious surface for each property in the county, resulting in some changes to ACC residents' bills.
If you have questions about the change in your stormwater utility fee, please call 706-613-3440 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to the volume of calls, you may be asked to leave a message. ACC Stormwater staff will respond to your question as soon as possible.
