Be a Water Watcher!
The water that comes from your faucet has been thoroughly treated to remove contaminants. However, polluted water often costs more to treat and can result in higher water bills.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services is on the lookout for contaminants in our creeks and streams. Join in on the cause by being a “Water Watcher.” To report any type of pollution in a Charlotte-Mecklenburg creek, lake, or storm drain, dial 311.
You can't see or smell every type of pollution, but here are some warning signs to look for:
- Muddy creek
- Foam or excessive bubbles
- Unusual color, or chalky or milky appearance
- Unusual odor
