Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services is a joint municipal/county stormwater utility that includes the City of Charlotte, the surrounding towns of Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville, Matthews, Mint Hill and Pineville and Mecklenburg County.
Mark your calendars for our 5th annual Creek Week which will take place March 19th – 25th! This year’s theme is “Into the Waters”. Join us for volunteer and educational activities throughout the week that will give you a deeper appreciation for our waterways. The week will conclude with The Big Spring Clean, where we will be at select sites around Charlotte-Mecklenburg for one big stream cleanup. We hope to see you there!
All volunteers under the age of 18 must sign the CMSWS Youth Participation Waiver to participate in each event or program. Children 15 years of age and younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Children ages 16-17 that can drive themselves to our events may have a parent or guardian sign the waiver and bring it to the event.

This month we are spotlighting Brynn and her “Grammy” for marking drains in both of their neighborhoods! Thanks so much, Brynn and Grammy! What a great way to get out and educate residents by letting them know that only rain goes down the drain. If you’d like to mark drains in your neighborhood, email STW-Volunteers@MeckNC.gov for a free Storm Drain Marking Kit!
