As part of the implementation of watershed protection strategies associated with the renewal of surface water discharge permits, municipal and county governments are increasingly addressing water quality in receiving waters downstream from development. Goals have been established that may require some portion of existing stormwater management systems to be retrofitted to address water quality. Fulton County, Georgia is in the process of developing a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) to address these and other concerns. The CIP is an attempt to meet the approximately $265 M in identified needs. A portion of these needs is dedicated towards retrofitting existing stormwater detention facilities. A screening procedure has been developed to broadly evaluate retrofit criteria.
