Fayetteville's stormwater utility is perhaps the City's least-noticed public service, but it is one of the most important. Every day, the City's stormwater infrastructure helps control erosion, protect natural resources, and keep roadways safe.

On a weekly basis, the Fayetteville Public Services Division monitors the structural integrity and viability of the stormwater System, and maintenance is given the highest priority.

Illicit Discharges

Illicit discharges are non-stormwater discharges that are not allowed under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES). Sanitary sewer, car wash waters, improper oil or radiator flushing disposal, laundry waste water, and improper disposal of auto and household toxic materials are examples of illicit discharges that can be the source of pollution to the City's stormwater drainage system and local stream systems. Please report these discharges to the City Building Department staff so that we can investigate and take the appropriate action to correct the problem.

Current projects that the City is working on is the pipe lining project which involves pipe lining to improve the stormwater pipe integrity to gain more lifespan out of pipes without replacing them.

Community Involvement Activities

The City of Fayetteville is looking for volunteers to participate in the City's storm drain stenciling event. The event is where community groups, scouts, neighborhood organizations apply a decal on the storm drains of a neighborhood to remind the community not to dump contaminants into the drains that can negatively impact streams. Please contact 770-460-4664 for more information.
