Stormwater Management Program

Stormwater Banner
Together, we can stop water pollution.
Stormwater is water that runs off roofs, driveways, and streets into our storm drains. On its way, stormwater picks up chemicals and pollutants that contaminate our waterways. The Environmental Protection Agency has found that stormwater (non-point source pollution) is the number 1 leading cause of pollution in today's streams, rivers, and lakes.  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. For more information regarding our permit regulations or what you can do to help stop water pollution please contact us by phone, email, or using our online contact form.

Teens In Action Smaller

Volunteers from the Teens in Action camp decal a storm drain in the Putter's Place neighborhood. All of these drains lead to Hunnicutt Creek, an impaired waterway. These decals warn people not to dump anything down the drain.
