DUE to amendments to the Georgia Erosion and Sedimentation Act, Athens-Clarke County is required to update its Soil Erosion, Sedimentation, and Pollution Control ordinance.  Athens-Clarke County is required to accept these changes in order to be in compliance with the Georgia State Code.  Upon reviewing the ordinance, in addition to the ordinance changes required by the state, Athens-Clarke County Transportation & Public Works staff proposed three additional changes to help achieve compliance, clarify procedure, and further protect state waters.

We are soliciting input on these proposed changes before proceeding with any implementation.  We are asking you to please review the proposed changes and submit your comments by Monday, September 26.  We have provided a survey with several short questions.  If the hyperlink does not work, you can also access the survey here:  It should not take more than 15 minutes to submit feetback.
