The Canoe Launch in Fort Oglethorpe is approximately 9.5-miles downstream of the canoe launch at the Lee & Gordon Mill in Chickamauga and is approximately 3.5-miles upstream of the canoe launch located just off of Dietz Road. If you were to continue traveling downstream from the launch at Dietz Road for another 10 miles you would arrive at Camp Jordan in East Ridge, Tennessee, where the West Chickamauga Creeks joins the South Chickamauga Creek.

The City of Fort Oglethorpe is required to comply with the Clean Water Act under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II MS4 Stormwater Permit and is administered by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Environmental Protection Division (EPD). The goal is to stop polluted discharges from entering the storm drains and local waterways.

The City is only responsible to maintain stormwater drainage facilities, including pipes, outfalls, catch basins, headwalls and detention ponds, that are located in the public-right-of-way, or on city owned property.

Maybe. The best approach is to contact our Stormwater Department staff and they will go out and analyze the area where the water flows to make a professional determination on whether it’s a stream/creek, or a stormwater channel that has intermittent water flow that requires a buffer. An ephemeral stream, which is a stormwater channel that only has flow in it immediately after a rainfall, does not need to be buffered.

When more than an acre, or more than 5,000 square feet of impervious surface is disturbed, a permit is required through the state and city.

Full compliance with the City’s Unified Development Code Article 6 and other applicable regulations shall be required. A Registered Professional Engineer or Registered Land Surveyor shall provide an elevation certificate and other applicable requirements to certify that the design and methods of construction are in accordance with accepted standards of practice for meeting the provisions of the City’s Unified Development Code and Other applicable regulations.

Purchase flood insurance. Homeowner’s insurance typically does not cover flood damage. Flood insurance supplements your homeowner’s insurance. Just a few inches of water can cause costly damage to your walls, floors, furniture, carpet and appliances. A presidential disaster declaration is not required for you to file a flood insurance claim. Learn more about the benefits of flood insurance visit Fema.gov and FloodSmart.org.

The owner of the property where a detention pond is located is responsible for maintenance of the pond. Some ponds are located on commercial property and some on residential property. In subdivisions where ponds are located and deeded to a party other than a homeowner, maintenance is typically the responsibility of the Homeowners Association or a designated property management company. In all cases, the owners of the property where the ponds are located are responsible for maintaining them to ensure proper functioning. The City of Fort Oglethorpe is responsible only for stormwater structures which are located within the City right-of-way or City owned property.

One of the most common additions people make to their cars in order to keep the heat out is a windshield visor. Cars become warm in the summer because direct sunlight enters in through the windows. This is why we park in the shade whenever we can. Since the largest windshield.
