The City's stormwater system is a vast web of canals, ditches, pipes, curbs, inlets, basins, pump stations and open spaces. They all connect and play a critical role in minimizing damage from storms and preventing pollution from reaching our waterways. The City of Savannah's Storm Water Management Plan is reviewed and updated every 5 years. The plan lays out how the City will minimize flooding and protect rivers and waterways from pollution. A management plan approved by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division is required before the City receives a permit to release storm water runoff into public rivers and waterways. Only Rain down the Drain!
The City is posting the plan for public access, review, and comment. In addition, the City is posting the most recent annual report which provides updates to the Storm Water Management Plan. The City is required to consider and respond to all public comments. Links to both documents are below as is information on how to submit questions and comments.
