Get Your ‘Creek On’! Celebrate Creek Week with Storm Water Services

Charlotte recognizes Creek Week

Did you know that there are over 3,000 miles of creeks and more than 50 named creeks in Charlotte-Mecklenburg? These creeks make up 17 watersheds; which are areas of land that drain into the same waterway. This Creek Week, Saturday, March 20 – Saturday, March 27, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services invites you to get to know our creeks by participating in a full week of safe outdoor volunteer events and fun, informative, virtual learning opportunities.

From the "Not Your Average Live Stream" event, which will provide an interactive look at life below to surface of a local creek to an outdoor creek cleanup where you can get hands on and help protect our waterways, there will be something for everyone.

Events will take place at watersheds that require extra attention and monitoring to help them meet water quality standards. Here is a look at what you can expect.
