In December 2004, the Athens-Clarke County Mayor and Commission voted to create a new utility fee to fund stormwater management in the county. This fee is billed to the owners of all developed property in Athens-Clarke County. For more information on the history of the fee and what it pays for, visit our Stormwater Utility Fee page.
The Stormwater Utility is separate from Athens-Clarke County's Water/Sewer utility. Please do not combine payments for Stormwater Utility and Water/Sewer Utility accounts. Combined payments will be returned and may result in the application of late fees to both utility accounts. Payments received after the due date printed on your utility bill are subject to a late payment fee.
NEW! Pay Online
You can now pay your Stormwater Utility Bill online. You will need your Stormwater Utility account number(s) to set up an online profile. Once on the portal, you can make a one-time payment (without creating a profile), change mailing addresses, set-up recurring credit card or bank draft payments, and access your account history. If you are having trouble accessing the site or setting up a profile, please call 706-613-3440 or email email@example.com to speak with a customer service representative.
Pay By Mail
Check or money order payments can be mailed to: Athens-Clarke County Stormwater Utility P.O. Box 117096 Atlanta, GA 30368-7096
Pay In Person
To make cash, check, money order, or Mastercard/Visa/Discover/American Express credit card payments in person, please visit:
Athens-Clarke County Water Business Office 124 East Hancock Avenue Athens, GA 30601
Water Business Office hours of operation are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. There is an overnight drop box available on site. The Water Business Office also accepts Athens-Clarke County water utility and sanitation service payments.
Other Payment Methods
EFTS or direct withdrawal from your bank account is also offered. If you are interested in direct withdrawal from your bank account, please download the bankdraft form, and submit the completed document to our office. You can also set-up Autopay through our online payment portal.
Note: If you are making payments using your bank's online bill pay option, please make sure to select the appropriate vendor and mailing address. Please do not choose the Athens-Clarke County Water Business Office as your vendor for stormwater payments - this will result in your payment going to your water account instead of your Stormwater account.
