Every time it rains, stormwater is carried directly to our surface waters. That means that stormwater pollution can have detrimental effects to our creeks, ponds, and the Catawba River into which it drains. Stormwater can carry sediment, trash, automotive fluids like used oil and antifreeze, grass clippings, leaves, yard waste, excess fertilizers, animal waste, pesticides and anything else that gets in its way.

  • Report spills, dumping or suspected water pollution to 704-827-3931
  • Never dump anything down a storm drain or in ditches or creeks.
  • Clear clogged storm drains. Blocked drains cause drainage problems.
  • Redirect roof gutters to lawns, natural areas or rain gardens.
  • Sweep up yard debris instead of washing it away.
  • Take used oil, paint and other household hazardous waste to recycling centers.
  • Use a compost bin to turn yard waste into a useful gardening product.
  • Use fertilizers sparingly and sweep up driveways, sidewalks, and gutters.
  • Take your car to a car wash instead of washing it on the driveway.
  • Replant bare areas to avoid soil erosion.
