Stormwater Management Program

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 recently completed a comprehensive audit of 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 used new 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 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.
