​Storm Water Advisory Committee

The Storm Water Advisory Committee (SWAC) is a group of volunteers who provide guidance and public input into the services and policies of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services.

The advisory committee is comprised of nine residents appointed by the City Council, County Commission, and Town Commissions. SWAC meets monthly and provides four areas of service:

  • reviews policies
  • hears appeals and decide on violations, fee credits, service charges and adjustments
  • evaluates capital and operational programs and budgets
  • makes recommendations or comments to elected official


The SWAC hears appeals related to the storm water fee, Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control Ordinance and the Post Construction Controls Ordinance.
