May 31 - June 6  Soil Erosion​ & Sedimentation

A common pollution problem for our local streams is erosion and sediment or dirt. 
A common source is construction sites.


All construction sites that disturb over 1 acre must comply with the City of Charlotte
Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control Ordinance.  


Some basics things we hope that you will ​report to us, if you see it.  This will help protect our streams!
