Griffin Stormwater Management Utility

The City of Griffin was the first municipality in Georgia to establish a stormwater utility in 1998. The utility addresses stormwater management issues and generates funding to implement other comprehensive watershed management programs. Information systems and personnel were added to support the development and function of the stormwater utility, with the director of public works responsible for the overall operation of the stormwater utility. As part of the program, a memorandum of agreement was established with Spalding County, whereby drainage problems common to both jurisdictions are jointly resolved and financed. The City’s success with stormwater management is the result of good planning. All recent updates of the comprehensive plan have called for implementation of a stormwater master plan that was first instituted in 2003. Brant Keller
