Mobile Workshop – Quality H20: Treating Urban Run-off

9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Charlotte Mecklenburg Storm Water Services (CMSWS) protects and improves the surface water quality of more than 3,000 miles of streams and numerous acres of lakes, ponds and wetlands. CMSWS implements some of the most innovative surface water quality management programs in North Carolina, some which have been awarded national recognition. All of them are focused on the goal of improving the quality and usability of surface waters such as streams and lakes.

Visit several project sites and engage in a discussion of how the different practices used by CMSWS improve water quality.  The discussion will cover the various benefits of these projects, the challenges of working in an urban environment, the regulatory drivers behind water quality improvement initiatives, and project funding mechanisms.  Project experts will be on-hand to guide the tour and answer your questions.
