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 storm drainage infrastructure when it deteriorates or cannot handle increases in stormwater. Investing in infrastructure reduces flood risks, protects public safety, guards private property, improves surface water quality and enhances our community.
More than 40 neighborhood storm drainage improvement projects (see interactive map below) and hundreds of smaller maintenance and repair projects are underway.
