With Storm Water Master Plan Complete, What’s Next?

In December 2020, the City Commission concluded two years of community engagement with their adoption of a new Storm Water Master Plan (SWMP).  The plan details our community intentions for mitigating flooding, solving existing drainage problems, and improving water quality and quality of life in Decatur.  

According to the SWMP, $38 million is needed to implement high priority capital projects by 2040. 

To source this funding, the City Commission will consider a newly proposed storm water fee schedule at its regular meeting on Monday, March 1, 2021

For more information about the Plan, its projects and proposed fees, review this downloadable fact sheet.

Never fails to produce large amounts of sediment and debris into the storm drains. There is No oversight. It is a constant issue. Until you can control the least of your problems. You will never be able to control large scale projects. Mead Rd. North Candler. ponce de Leon. All areas of significant runoff and lack of erosion control on the simplest of projects. The lack of over site is disappointing to say the very least.
