Stream & Wetland Restoration Projects​​

​High quality streams need natural features to be healthy. These features include stable stream banks, wide buffers of woody vegetation, sinuosity, and unobstructed access to floodplains.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services works to improve and restore streams and wetlands throughout Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. City of Charlotte Storm Water Services has restored 20 miles of stream and improved or protected 42 acres of wetlands. Since 1998, Mecklenburg County Storm Water Services has restored over 40 miles of stream and created nearly 200 acres of open space.
