The Rockdale County Stormwater Utility was created in 2005 to comply with federal requirements established by the Water Quality Act of 1987. The Utility was managed by the Planning & Development Department until February 2018, when the County created a separate Department of Stormwater Management. As a continuation of the Utility’s mission from 2005, the Department of Stormwater Management must inspect and maintain its drainage infrastructure, educate the public about proper stormwater management, and enforce practices to reduce pollution caused by stormwater runoff.
Major Programs of Rockdale County Department of Stormwater Management:
- Construction and Maintenance Projects
- Plan Review and Permitting
- Runoff Reduction Practicability Policy
- Linear Feasibility Program
- Regulatory Compliance
- Investigate Potential Pollution Sources
- Education and Outreach
- Infrastructure Inspections
- Billing and Administration
The Stormwater Management Plan identifies the best management practices and measurable goals that reflects the community’s choices. The SWMP will reduce pollution through education, policy & procedures, inspection, and maintenance. These practices and goals form the basis on which the success of the Phase II program can be evaluated in each community and satisfy the requirements of the Clean Water Act.
These programs are funded entirely by the Stormwater Utility Fee.
