NPDES Permit Information

Athens-Clarke County Stormwater 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 local waters. The Georgia Environmental Protection Division enforces these permits through their Municipal Stormwater Program.

Athens-Clarke County is considered a Phase II MS4 community, and as such, we are required to report on our stormwater management practices annually. A variety of reporting documents outling ACC's best management practices are included below. If you are interested in viewing any of the attachments referenced in these reports, please email
