I have a Ditch, Creek or Stream on my property, who maintains it?
Last Updated: November 20
The city currently maintains all ditches located on the right of way of the city (this does not include grass mowing or trash removal). If the Ditch, Creek or Stream is located on private property it is the responsibility of the property owner to maintain. If it is located on the common area of a sub division it is the responsibility of the Home Owners Association to maintain. Dutchman's Creek and other larger bodies of water are owned by the State of North Carolina.
