Stormwater Management Program
The City of Garden City has developed a Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP) as required by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Environmental Protection Division (EPD). This Plan provides a comprehensive framework for inspecting and maintaining City stormwater infrastructure and how the City will address water quality issues, enforce stormwater requirements, and educate the public about important stormwater best management practices (BMPs).
The City recently revised its SWMP to meet new State requirements and a draft copy of this Plan can be viewed at http://www.gardencity-ga.gov/stormwater-program-elements
