The City of Cartersville’s Stormwater Utility provides funding for our Stormwater Program. The Stormwater Program is responsible for the management of issues related to the drainage of stormwater runoff including:
Construction and maintenance of stormwater infrastructure
Sediment and erosion control
Mitigation of flooding
Ensuring the cleanliness of stormwater runoff
Compliance monitoring and enforcement
Managing stormwater is an important part of keeping our water supply clean and keeping our community safe from the dangers of flooding and its associated problems.
Single-family residential rates are based on the amount of impervious surface (roof, patio, driveway, etc.) on the property. There are two tiers: properties with less than or equal to 3000 square feet of impervious surface, and properties with greater than 3000 square feet of impervious surface. The current rates are:
Less than or equal to 3000 square feet of impervious surface:
Greater than 3000 square feet of impervious surface:
For non-single-family residential properties (multi-family, commercial, industrial, government, and churches), rates are assessed per 3000 square feet of impervious surface.
