Under what circumstances do I need a Stormwater Management Permit, and how do I obtain one?

A Stormwater Management Permit is needed for any land development that: 

  • creates 10,000 square feet or more of impervious cover
  • replaces one acre or more of impervious cover
  • involves other land development activity of one acre or more.

The permit is obtained from the Transportation & Public Works Department and requires an application, fees, and a stormwater management plan prepared by a professional engineer or landscape architect licensed in Georgia. The plan must meet ACCGov requirements, and must be reviewed and approved by the department prior to permit issuance.
