In 1995, the citizens of Athens-Clarke County approved a special local option sales tax which included a component for stormwater management. The comprehensive stormwater management program is intended to help minimize future damage to property, protect existing watersheds, manage land development activities, and plan for needed drainage improvements. This program includes procedures to identify problem areas, to perform the hydrologic and hydraulic analyses necessmy to quantify the magnitude of the problems, to develop and evaluate remediation alternatives, and to establish priorities for project implementation. Stormwater management is a dynamic process. New development, changes in land use plans, and changes in state and federal laws and regulations require changes in various components of the program as they occur.
