Stormwater Permit and Management Program

On December 31, 2022 the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) re-issued the General National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit No. GAG610000 for Phase II Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4) to waters of the State. This five year permit is in accordance with the Federal Clean Water Act and the Georgia Water Quality Control Act and requires each MS4 to submit to EPD a new Stormwater Management Program (SWMP). As part of the SWMP, each designated Phase II community is required to address six minimum control measures (MCM), which includes:

  1. Public Education and Outreach on Stormwater Impacts
  2. Public Involvement / Participation
  3. Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination (IDDE)
  4. Construction Site Stormwater Runoff Control
  5. Post – Construction Stormwater Management in New Development and Redevelopment
  6. Pollution Prevention / Good Housekeeping for Municipal Operations

The City has worked diligently on the SWMP to establish a successful stormwater program that reduces pollution through education, policy / procedures, inspection, and maintenance.
