Stormwater management has continued to pose new and growing challenges to cities and counties throughout the US and more particularly in Georgia. Aging stormwater infrastructure, development and growth, environmental impacts, and regulatory requirements create technical, fiscal, and institutional demands that require new approaches and resources. Many Georgia communities are addressing these challenges and finding solutions and approaches that fit their particular needs. These solutions have certain common elements that are useful for other Georgia communities. The authors share specific insights and lessons learned over the last two decades in working with many US and Georgia communities. More recent lessons from Georgia communities and the implications to other communities are discussed. The insights and lessons are relevant to all communities at any stage of program development. The authors provide insights on rate structure development in many Georgia communities along with comparisons and analyses of methods and structures used in Georgia.
