Stormwater Management
Stormwater runoff is an issue few people spend much time worrying about, unless they are driving home through flooded streets, seeing flooded yards, or even worse, a flooded house. All properties contribute to the drainage problem, even the properties that don't seem to have a flooding problem.

The Problem With Stormwater
Stormwater is water that comes off our house roofs, driveways, sidewalks, and roads when it rains. This stormwater then washes pollutants into our surface water. Taking appropriate steps to control stormwater runoff is an important issue for the City of Norcross. The city has been working to deal with stormwater management issues and has identified the following steps for the stormwater management program:
  1. Achieve compliance with new state and federal regulations
  2. Improve drainage system operations and maintenance
  3. Implement capital drainage improvement projects
  4. Increase funding options (grants, bonds, and user fees)

Repairs Needed
The city needs to repair ditches, replace small pipes and culverts with larger ones, and add pipes where needed. In addition, the city will also be cleaning pipes and ditches on a more regular basis.

In order to do this, a storm water user fee has been established for each city customer and will include all:
  • Businesses
  • Government facilities
  • Institutions
  • Residences

You will receive an invoice for the fee annually in September of each year.
