Storm Drainage Improvement Projects​

Nothing lasts forever. Even the pipes that move stormwater from streets to streams wear out with age. Much of Charlotte’s aging public storm drainage system is past its useful life.

Storm Drainage Improvement Projects repair, replace and install new infrastructure when it deteriorates. Investing in infrastructure reduces flood risks, protects public safety, improves surface water quality and enhances our community.

More than 40 major Storm Drainage Improvement Projects (see interactive map below) and hundreds of smaller minor projects are underway.​  To view an interactive map of all major and minor Storm Drainage Improvement Projects visit the City of Charlotte’s Capital Project Dashboard.
