The campaign included digital web banners, social media, photography, and two engaging, yet informative 30 and 45-second videos featuring Stormy. In one video, a socially-distanced Stormy plays his guitar throughout Charlotte as a catchy melody explains to residents that only rain should go in a storm drain. In the second video, Stormy highlights the various volunteer efforts that are happening in our neighborhoods. These videos air year-round to engage and educate residents.

Storm Water Services is honored to be recognized and will continue its efforts to manage runoff, protect surface water quality and reduce the risk of flooding.
