Motor Oil Disposal Decals
This program involves installing “Used Motor Oil Decals” on each residential garbage container (approximately 4,000) used in the unincorporated areas of Peach County. Each decal will instruct the individual on used motor oil disposal procedures and will contain the address, phone number of the Peach County Recycling Facility, and URL for the County’s Stormwater Web Site.
Dry Weather Screening
The County will implement a program to screen dry weather discharges in the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s) within the urbanized areas of the County. The County will screen 100 percent of its outfalls within the urbanized area on an annual basis. Updates to the outfall maps will also be made annually to identify outfalls from the (MS4s) to waters of the State, which is consistent with the definition of an outfall from the general permit. If there is dry weather flow and if detected water quality limits are above their acceptable baseline limits as outlined in the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District’s dry weather screening standards as outlined in Standards and Methodologies for Surface Water Quality Monitoring, the County will initiate the Source Tracing and Removal Procedures.
MS4 Inspection Program
To ensure long-term functionality of the County’s drainage infrastructure, an MS4 inspection and maintenance program will be implemented for the urbanized areas of the County that utilizes the EPD approved inspection procedure/checklist. MS4 elements for inspection include storm sewer lines, catch basins, culverts, and drainage ditches. These inspections will include examinations for both structural and water quality concerns.
