Water Quality Program

What does the Water Quality Program do?

We manage Chattanooga's stormwater, natural water bodies, & green infrastructure

  • Stormwater runoff is rain water that is not absorbed into the ground because it falls on hard, impervious surfaces like roofs, roads, & parking lots.

  • When water runs off these surfaces, it can pick up pollutants that go directly, untreated into our water bodies.

  • We work to improve the quality and quantity of stormwater & it's impact on our ecosystems.


What don't we do 

We do not manage sanitary sewer or drinking water
