Stormwater Management Program

"STOP WATER POLLUTION"

The Stormwater Management Program is dedicated to protecting Athens-Clarke County waterways from the moment it runs off the street to the moment it reaches our streams.  

What Is Stormwater?
Stormwater is water that runs off roofs, driveways, and streets into our storm drains. What most people do not realize is that in the journey from the streets to the streams, stormwater picks up chemicals and pollutants that contaminate our waterways.
