It is unlawful to connect to the public sanitary sewer without payment of the prescribed fee and without a permit. If such a sewer
connection is made, a current sewer tap fee, the fee at the time the connection was discovered, will be assessed; back sewer use
charges will be made and interest at the rate specified in Section 2-112 will be charged. (Code 1976, § 6-2059)
T
he above equation yields a peaking factor that is intended to cover normal infiltration and inflow for a well-maintained sewer
system and/or those built with modern materials and construction methods. The peaking factor shall not be less than two and
one-half (2.5). Where P is not known or cannot be reasonably assumed, PE (Population Equivalence) may be used. PE is Q (flow
in GPM) divided by one hundred (100)
GPD for new systems and one hundred and twenty-five (125) GPD for existing systems.

ec. 25-220. - Maintenance and repair responsibility for building sewer service connections to public sanitary sewer system.
The property owner shall be responsible for maintenance and repair of building sewer service connections to the public sanitary
sewer system on private property. DeKalb County shall be responsible for maintenance and repair of building sewer service
connections within county street rights-of-way and sanitary sewer easements. (Ord. No. 90-09, § 1, 5-30-90)
Please submit completed/signed and sealed forms to:
Appendix - A
Sec. 25-219. - Connecting to public sewer without paying fees or obtaining permit.
a) General: Gravity Sanitary Sewer Lines: Gravity sanitary sewer lines shall be sized to accommodate the peak design flow
subject to the following limitations:
(1) The maximum depth of flow to diameter of pipe ratio (d/D ratio) for gravity sewer pipes shall not be greater than 0.8 at
t
he peak flow condition.
(2) The minimum size for a sanitary sewer collection line is eight (8) inches. The minimum size for a sanitary sewer service
line is six (6) inches
.
b) Design Basis: Gravity Sanitary Sewer Line: Gravity sanitary sewer systems shall be designed on the basis of per capita flows
for the design period in conjunction with a peaking factor, or approved alternative methods. Design calculations for trunk and
interceptor sewers shall be submitted to the DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management (DC DWM) for approval.
(3) Infiltration/Inflow: Use of the per capita flows and the peaking factor is intended to cover normal infiltration and inflow
of water (I/I) for systems built with modern construction techniques. However, an additional allowance should be made for
I/I with existing conditions such as high ground water, older systems, or a number of illicit connections. I/I for existin
g

stems should be made from actual flow data to the greatest extent possible.
(1) Average Daily Flow: The Average Daily Flow (ADF) that a site will generate is calculated based on the particular use of the
site. The Table 1 (shown below) shows sanitary flow generation factors, in gallons per day (GPD), which can be used to
estimate sanitary flows from proposed and existing developments.
(2) Peak Flow (GPD): Generally, the sewers shall be designed to carry at least the peak hourly flow when operating at

41 Delineation of the applicable 25-foot or 50-foot undisturbed buffers adjacent to State waters and any additional buffers
required by the Local Issuing Authority. Clearly note and delineate all areas of impact.
The State Law of Georgia mandates these minimum undisturbed buffers, but the Local Issuing Authorities are allowed to
require more stringent buffers of State waters. The minimum undisturbed buffers required by the State and all other buffers
of State waters required by the issuing authority must be delineated. Any undisturbed buffer area that is impacted by the
project site must be noted on the Plan. Permit IV.D.2.e pg 27
42 Delineation of on-site wetlands and all State waters located on and within 200 feet of the project site.
ALL STATE WATERS LOCATED ON AND WITHIN 200 FEET OF THE PROJECT SITE MUST BE DELINEATED ON
ALL PHASES OF THE PLAN. When a project is located in a jurisdiction with a certified Local Issuing Authority and the
LIA must make a determination of State waters that are not delineated on the Plan, the Plan review could be delayed for
beyond the full forty-five day review time allowed to the LIA, or the full thirty-five day review time allowed to the District if the
District is reviewing the Plan. For all projects in a jurisdiction where there is no certified Local Issuing Authority regulating
that project, EPD is responsible for State waters determinations and there are no time limits for reviewing the Plan.
ALL WETLANDS LOCATED WITHIN THE PROJECT SITE ONLY MUST BE DELINEATED.
If the Local Issuing Authority requires an undisturbed buffer of wetlands, delineate required buffer.
43 Delineation and acreage of contributing drainage basins on the project site.

45 An estimate of the runoff coefficient or peak discharge flow of the site prior to and after construction activities are
completed.
The Plan must provide both pre- and post-construction estimates of the runoff coefficient or peak discharge flow for the site.
This can be in the form of a hydrologic study so long as that study is made a part of the Plan and accompanies the Plan. A
complete hydrologic study is not a required element of the Plan, only the pre and post-construction estimates of the run-off
coefficient or peak discharge flow for the site. Permit IV.D.2.d pg 27
46 Storm-drain pipe and weir velocities with appropriate outlet protection to accommodate discharges without erosion.
Identify/Delineate all storm water discharge points.
The storm-drain pipe and weir velocities must show the flow characteristics of the pipe at full flow including pipe diameter,

Soil series delineations are required for the Plan review and can be found on the NRCS web site. The highest level of soil
survey required for the project site, such as a level three or level four survey for projects that will be using septic systems,
must be delineated on the Plan. The soil series delineation should be shown on the existing site Plan or the initial phase
Plan. A chart listing the soils located on the project should be shown on the sheet with their delineation.
48 The limits of disturbance for each phase of construction.
The limits of disturbance for the initial phase should delineate only the area required to be disturbed for the installation of
perimeter control and initial sediment storage. The intermediate phase should delineate the entire area to be disturbed for
that phase, such as grading, drainage, utilities installed, etc. The final phase should delineate any additional areas to be
disturbed such as individual lots, etc.
49 Provide a minimum of 67 cubic yards of sediment storage per acre drained using a temporary sediment basin,
retrofitted detention pond, and/or excavated inlet sediment traps for each common drainage location. Sediment storage
volume must be in place prior to and during all land disturbance activities until final stabilization of the site has been
achieved. A written justification explaining the decision to use equivalent controls when a sediment basin is not attainable
must be included in the Plan for each common drainage location in which a sediment basin is not provided. A written
justification as to why 67 cubic yards of storage is not attainable must also be given. Worksheets from the Manual must be
included for structural BMPs and all calculations used by the design professional to obtain the required sediment storage
when using equivalent controls. When discharging from sediment basins and impoundments, permittees are required to
utilize outlet structures that withdraw water from the surface, unless infeasible. If outlet structures that withdraw water from
the surface are not feasible, a written justification explaining this decision must be included in the Plan.
For each common drainage location, a temporary (or Permanent) sediment basin (Sd3, Sd4, Rt, or excavated Sd2) providing
at least 67 cubic yards of storage per acre drained, or equivalent control measures, shall be provided until final stabilization
of the site. The 67cubic yards of storage per acre does not apply to flows from off-site areas and flows from on-site areas
that are either undisturbed or have undergone final stabilization where such flows are diverted around both the disturbed
area and the sediment basin. Sediment basins may not be appropriate for some common drainage locations and a written
justification explaining the decision not to use sediment basins must be included in the Plan. Worksheets from the Manual
must be completed and shown on the Plan or attached to the Plan for each temporary sediment basin designed for the
project. All cross sections and details required per the Manual for Sd3's must be shown on the ES&PC detail section of the
Plan. Completed worksheets from the Manual must be shown on the Plan for each retrofit and excavated inlet sediment
trap. When the design professional chooses to use equivalent controls the calculations used to obtain the required 67 cubic
yards per acre drained must be included on the Plan. If outlet structures that withdraw water from the surface are not
feasible, a written justification explaining this decision must be included in the Plan. Permit IV.D.3.a.(3) pg 28

41 Delineation of the applicable 25-foot or 50-foot undisturbed buffers adjacent to State waters and any additional buffers
required by the Local Issuing Authority. Clearly note and delineate all areas of impact.
The State Law of Georgia mandates these minimum undisturbed buffers, but the Local Issuing Authorities are allowed to
require more stringent buffers of State waters. The minimum undisturbed buffers required by the State and all other buffers
of State waters required by the issuing authority must be delineated. Any undisturbed buffer area that is impacted by the
project site must be noted on the Plan. Permit IV.D.2.e pg 28
42 Delineation of on-site wetlands and all State waters located on and within 200 feet of the project site.
ALL STATE WATERS LOCATED ON AND WITHIN 200 FEET OF THE PROJECT SITE MUST BE DELINEATED ON
ALL PHASES OF THE PLAN. When a project is located in a jurisdiction with a certified Local Issuing Authority and the
LIA must make a determination of State waters that are not delineated on the Plan, the Plan review could be delayed for
beyond the full forty-five day review time allowed to the LIA, or the full thirty-five day review time allowed to the District if the
District is reviewing the Plan. For all projects in a jurisdiction where there is no certified Local Issuing Authority regulating
that project, EPD is responsible for State waters determinations and there is no time limits for reviewing the Plan.
ALL WETLANDS LOCATED WITHIN THE PROJECT SITE ONLY MUST BE DELINEATED.
If the Local Issuing Authority requires an undisturbed buffer of wetlands, delineate required buffer.
43 Delineation and acreage of contributing drainage basins on the project site.
All existing drainage basins on the project site and their acreage must be delineated on the existing conditions and/or on
the initial phase of the Plan. As the basins are altered or new ones created during intermediate and final phases, the new
basins and their acreage must be delineated throughout each phase of the Plan. Permit IV.D.2.e pg 28
44 Delineate on-site drainage and off-site watersheds using USGS 1" :2000' topographical sheets.
Hydrology study and drainage maps should be separate from the Plan. Maps should include each individual basin
draining to, through and from the project site, with each one delineated, labeled and showing its total acreage.
45 An estimate of the runoff coefficient or peak discharge flow of the site prior to and after construction activities are
completed.
The Plan must provide both pre- and post-construction estimates of the runoff coefficient or peak discharge flow for the site.
This can be in the form of a hydrologic study so long as that study is made a part of the Plan and accompanies the Plan. A
complete hydrologic study is not a required element of the Plan, only the pre and post-construction estimates of the run-off
coefficient or peak discharge flow for the site. Permit IV.D.2.d pg 28
46 Storm-drain pipe and weir velocities with appropriate outlet protection to accommodate discharges without erosion.
Identify/Delineate all storm water discharge points.
The storm-drain pipe and weir velocities must show the flow characteristics of the pipe at full flow, including pipe diameter,
flow rate (cfs), velocity (fps), and tailwater conditions. This information should be shown in a chart shown on storm-drain
profile sheet, ES&PC intermediate phase sheet or on the ES&PC detail sheet that shows outlet protection.
The dimensions of the apron must include length (La), width at the headwall (W1), down-stream width (W2), average
stone diameter (d50), and stone depth (D) designed in accordance with Figures 6-34.1 and 6-34.2 in the Manual. These
should be shown in a chart on ES&PC intermediate and/or final phase sheet or ES&PC detail sheet with outlet protection.
Velocity dissipation devices shall be placed at all discharge locations and along the length of any outfall channel for the
purpose of providing a non-erosive velocity flow from the structure to a water course so that the natural physical and
biological functions and characteristics are maintained and protected.
47 Soil series for the project site and their delineation.
Soil series delineations are required for the Plan review and can be found on the NRCS web site. The highest level of soil
survey required for the project site, such as a level three or level four survey for projects that will be using septic systems,
must be delineated on the Plan. The soil series delineation should be shown on the existing site Plan or the initial phase
Plan. A chart listing the soils located on the project should be shown on the sheet with their delineation.
48 The limits of disturbance for each phase of construction.
The limits of disturbance for the initial phase should delineate only the area required to be disturbed for the installation of
perimeter control and initial sediment storage. The intermediate phase should delineate the entire area to be disturbed for
that phase, such as grading, drainage, utilities installed, etc. The final phase should delineate any additional areas to be
disturbed such as individual lots, etc.
49 Provide a minimum of 67 cubic yards of sediment storage per acre drained using a temporary sediment basin,
retrofitted detention pond, and/or excavated inlet sediment traps for each common drainage location. Sediment storage
volume must be in place prior to and during all land disturbance activities until final stabilization of the site has been
achieved. A written justification explaining the decision to use equivalent controls when a sediment basin is not attainable
must be included in the Plan for each common drainage location in which a sediment basin is not provided. A written
justification as to why 67 cubic yards of storage is not attainable must also be given. Worksheets from the Manual must be
included for structural BMPs and all calculations used by the design professional to obtain the required sediment storage
when using equivalent controls. When discharging from sediment basins and impoundments, permittees are required to
utilize outlet structures that withdraw water from the surface, unless infeasible. If outlet structures that withdraw water from
the surface are not feasible, a written justification explaining this decision must be included in the Plan.
For each common drainage location, a temporary (or permanent) sediment basin (Sd3, Sd4, Rt, or excavated Sd2) providing
at least 67 cubic yards of storage per acre drained, or equivalent control measures, shall be provided until final stabilization
of the site. The 67cubic yards of storage per acre does not apply to flows from off-site areas and flows from on-site areas
that are either undisturbed or have undergone final stabilization where such flows are diverted around both the disturbed
area and the sediment basin. Sediment basins may not be appropriate for some common drainage locations and a written
justification explaining the decision not to use sediment basins must be included in the Plan. Worksheets from the Manual
must be completed and shown on the Plan or attached to the Plan for each temporary sediment basin designed for the
project. All cross sections and details required per the Manual for Sd3's must be shown on the ES&PC detail section of the
Plan. Completed worksheets from the Manual must be shown on the Plan for each retrofit and excavated inlet sediment
trap. When the design professional chooses to use equivalent controls the calculations used to obtain the required 67 cubic
yards per acre drained must be included on the Plan. If outlet structures that withdraw water from the surface are not
feasible, a written justification explaining this decision must be included in the Plan. Permit IV.D.3.a.(3) pg 29

ALL PHASES OF THE PLAN. When a project is located in a jurisdiction with a certified Local Issuing Authority and the
LIA must make a determination of State waters that are not delineated on the Plan, the Plan review could be delayed for
beyond the full forty-five day review time allowed to the LIA, or the full thirty-five day review time allowed to the District if the
District is reviewing the Plan. For all projects in a jurisdiction where there is no certified Local Issuing Authority regulating
that project, EPD is responsible for State waters determinations and there is no time limits for reviewing the Plan.
ALL WETLANDS LOCATED WITHIN THE PROJECT SITE ONLY MUST BE DELINEATED.
If the Local Issuing Authority requires an undisturbed buffer of wetlands, delineate required buffer.
45 Delineation and acreage of contributing drainage basins on the project site.
All existing drainage basins on the project site and their acreage must be delineated on the existing conditions and/or on
the initial phase of the Plan. As the basins are altered or new ones created during intermediate and final phases, the new
basins and their acreage must be delineated throughout each phase of the Plan. Permit IV.D.2.e pg 30
46 Provide hydrology study and maps of drainage basins for both the pre- and post-developed conditions.*
Hydrology study and drainage maps should be separate from the Plan. Maps should include each individual basin
draining to, through and from the project site, with each one delineated, labeled and showing its total acreage.
47 An estimate of the runoff coefficient or peak discharge flow of the site prior to and after construction activities are
completed. *
The Plan must provide both pre- and post-construction estimates of the runoff coefficient or peak discharge flow for the site.
This can be in the form of a hydrologic study so long as that study is made a part of the Plan and accompanies the Plan. A
complete hydrologic study is not a required element of the Plan, only the pre and post-construction estimates of the run-off
coefficient or peak discharge flow for the site. Permit IV.D.2.d pg 30
48 Storm-drain pipe and weir velocities with appropriate outlet protection to accommodate discharges without erosion.
Identify/Delineate all storm water discharge points.
The storm-drain pipe and weir velocities must show the flow characteristics of the pipe at full flow including pipe diameter,
flow rate (cfs), velocity (fps), and tailwater conditions. This information should be shown in a chart shown on storm-drain
profile sheet, ES&PC intermediate phase sheet or on the ES&PC detail sheet that shows outlet protection.
The dimensions of the apron must include length (La), width at the headwall (W1), down-stream width (W2), average
stone diameter (d50), and stone depth (D) designed in accordance with Figures 6-34.1 and 6-34.2 in the Manual. These
should be shown in a chart on ES&PC intermediate and/or final phase sheet or ES&PC detail sheet with outlet protection.
Velocity dissipation devices shall be placed at all discharge locations and along the length of any outfall channel for the
purpose of providing a non-erosive velocity flow from the structure to a water course so that the natural physical and
biological functions and characteristics are maintained and protected.
49 Soil series for the project site and their delineation.
Soil series delineations are required for the Plan review and can be found on the NRCS web site. The highest level of soil
survey required for the project site, such as a level three or level four survey for projects that will be using septic systems,
must be delineated on the Plan. The soil series delineation should be shown on the existing site Plan or the initial phase
Plan. A chart listing the soils located on the project should be shown on the sheet with their delineation.
50 The limits of disturbance for each phase of construction.
The limits of disturbance for the initial phase should delineate only the area required to be disturbed for the installation of
perimeter control and initial sediment storage. The intermediate phase should delineate the entire area to be disturbed for
that phase, such as grading, drainage, utilities installed, etc. The final phase should delineate any additional areas to be
disturbed such as individual lots, etc.
51 Provide a minimum of 67 cubic yards of sediment storage per acre drained using a temporary sediment basin,
retrofitted detention pond, and/or excavated inlet sediment traps for each common drainage location. Sediment storage
volume must be in place prior to and during all land disturbance activities until final stabilization of the site has been
achieved. A written justification explaining the decision to use equivalent controls when a sediment basin is not attainable
must be included in the Plan for each common drainage location in which a sediment basin is not provided. A written
justification as to why 67 cubic yards of storage is not attainable must also be given. Worksheets from the Manual must be
included for structural BMPs and all calculations used by the design professional to obtain the required sediment storage
when using equivalent controls. When discharging from sediment basins and impoundments, permittees are required to
utilize outlet structures that withdraw water from the surface, unless infeasible. If outlet structures that withdraw water from
the surface are not feasible, a written justification explaining this decision must be included in the Plan.
For each common drainage location, a temporary (or Permanent) sediment basin (Sd3, Sd4, Rt, or excavated Sd2) providing
at least 67 cubic yards of storage per acre drained, or equivalent control measures, shall be provided until final stabilization
of the site. The 67cubic yards of storage per acre does not apply to flows from off-site areas and flows from on-site areas
that are either undisturbed or have undergone final stabilization where such flows are diverted around both the disturbed
area and the sediment basin. Sediment basins may not be appropriate for some common drainage locations and a written
justification explaining the decision not to use sediment basins must be included in the Plan. Worksheets from the Manual
must be completed and shown on the Plan or attached to the Plan for each temporary sediment basin designed for the
project. All cross sections and details required per the Manual for Sd3's must be shown on the ES&PC detail section of the
Plan. Completed worksheets from the Manual must be shown on the Plan for each retrofit and excavated inlet sediment
trap. When the design professional chooses to use equivalent controls the calculations used to obtain the required 67 cubic
yards per acre drained must be included on the Plan. If outlet structures that withdraw water from the surface are not
feasible, a written justification explaining this decision must be included in the Plan. Permit IV.D.3.a.(3) pg 31
52 Location of Best Management Practices that are consistent with and no less stringent than the Manual for Erosion and
Sediment Control in Georgia. Use uniform coding symbols from the Manual, Chapter 6, with legend.
BMPs for all phases of the Plan must be consistent with and no less stringent than the Manual and shown using uniform
coding symbols from the Manual. The uniform coding symbols legend from the Manual must be included and may be
shown on detail sheet or any of the ES&PC Plan sheets.
53 Provide detailed drawings for all structural practices. Specifications must, at a minimum, meet the guidelines set forth in
the Manual for Erosion and Sediment Control in Georgia.
The erosion and sediment control detail sheet must show a detailed drawing for each structural BMP shown on the Plan.
All BMPs and details shown must, at a minimum, meet the guidelines given in the Manual. Note that a worksheet is
provided in the Manual for most structural BMPs that must be included on the ES&PC Plan or detail sheet.
54 Provide vegetative plan, noting all temporary and permanent vegetative practices. Include species, planting dates and
seeding, fertilizer, lime and mulching rates. Vegetative plan shall be site specific for appropriate time of year that seeding
will take place and for the appropriate geographic region of Georgia.
Must be shown on ES&PC Plan, on the ES&PC detail sheet or under ES&PC notes.
*This requirement of the Common Development permit is not applicable to Tertiary Permittees with a Plan(s) for a typical
individual lot(s), if the total land disturbance within the construction site is less than five (5) acres and the total land disturbance
within each individual lot is less than one (1) acre. If applicable, the * checklist item would be N/A.

APPENDIX 1
THE ES&PC PLAN MUST INCLUDE AT LEAST FOUR (4) OF THE FOLLOWING BMPS FOR THOSE AREAS OF
THE SITE WHICH DISCHARGE TO A IMPAIRED STREAM SEGMENT AND FOR SITES WHICH EPD HAS
APPROVED IN WRITING A REQUEST TO DISTURB 5O ACRES OR MORE AT ANY ONE TIME.
During construction activities, double the width of the 25 foot undisturbed vegetated buffer along all
State waters requiring a buffer and the 50 foot undisturbed vegetated buffer along all State waters
classified as "trout streams" requiring a buffer. During construction activities, EPD will not grant
variances to any such buffers that are increased in width.
Use flocculants or coagulants and/or mulch to stabilize areas left disturbed for more than seven (7)
calendar days in accordance with Section III. D.1. of the NPDES Permit.
Conduct turbidity sampling after every rain event of 0.5 inch or greater within any 24 hour period,
recognizing the exceptions specified in Section IV.D.6.d. of the NPDES Permits.
Comply with the applicable end-of-pipe turbidity effluent limit, without the "BMP defense" as
provided for in O.C.G.A. 12-7-6 (a)(1).
Reduce the total planned site disturbance to less than 50% impervious surfaces (excluding any
State-mandated buffer areas from such calculations). All calculations must be included on the Plan.
Limit the amount of disturbed area at any one time to no greater than 25 acres or 50% of the total
planned site, whichever is less. All calculations must be included on the Plan.
Use “Dirt II” techniques available on the EPD website to model and manage construction storm
water runoff (including sheet flow). All calculations must be included on the Plan.
(https://epd.georgia.gov/erosion-and-sedimentation)
Add appropriate organic soil amendments (e.g., compost) and conduct pre- and post-construction
soil sampling to a depth of six (6) inches to document improved levels of soil carbon after final
stabilization of the construction site.
Use mulch filter berms, in addition to a silt fence, on the site perimeter wherever construction storm
water (including sheet flow) may be discharged. Mulch filter berms cannot be placed in waterways
or areas of concentrated flow.
Use appropriate erosion control slope stabilization instead of concrete in all construction storm
water ditches and storm drainages designed for a 25 year, 24 hour rainfall event.
Use flocculants or coagulants under a passive dosing method (e.g., flocculant blocks) within
construction storm water ditches and storm drainages that feed into temporary sediment basins and
retrofitted management basins.
Install sod for a minimum 20 foot width (in lieu of seeding) after final grade has been achieved,
along the site perimeter wherever storm water (including sheet flow) may be discharged.
Conduct soil tests to identify and to implement site-specific fertilizer needs.
