Because the stormwater utility fee is a service-based fee, properties with stormwater management facilities such as detention or retention ponds to manage their stormwater runoff may be eligible for a reduction of their fee. The utility credits (fee reductions) may reduce the quantity or quality charges on your stormwater bill. The base charge on your bill is not eligible for reduction. View and print the Adjustment Review Request.
To qualify for a utility credit, a licensed professional engineer must evaluate the stormwater facility for compliance with the current Athens-Clarke County design standards. These standards can be found in the Georgia Stormwater Management Manual.
