Anytime there is a project that requires digging - even if it is a small amount - there should be a notice called in to the Utility Protection Center (Georgia UPC).

The City is utilizing computerized maps, called Geographic
Information System (GIS), as well as aerial photographs to measure
the total square footage of impervious surface on a parcel.
The fee is being based on the total amount of impervious surface on
a parcel. Impervious surfaces are areas that cannot absorb
rainfall including rooftops, driveways, sidewalks, etc. These areas
reduce the natural infiltration of stormwater, which increases
