Charlotte, NC - Mecklenburg County is hosting an important seminar to familiarize developers, builders and the general public with the requirements of the Huntersville Water Quality Ordinance and the measures necessary for compliance.
Thursday, February 17, 2005
8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
CPCC North Campus

To register, call 704-336-5500 or e-mail Kim Garrett at
email@example.com. The registration deadline is Tuesday, February 15, 2005.
The workshop will contain important information for anyone who is planning on building in Huntersville. It is
free and open to all interested parties. Rain gardens, grassed swales, and filter strips are just a few of the Best Management Practices approved for use under the Huntersville Water Quality Ordinance. Adopted by the Town of Huntersville, this relatively new ordinance ensures the protection of surface water quality from pollutants associated with land development activities.
Mecklenburg County Water Quality Program is hosting the workshop. It will focus on current stream and lake water quality conditions, practical application of the LID Ordinance, incentives, inspection and enforcement and rain garden installation. All participants will receive a copy of the "Huntersville Water Quality Ordinance Design Manual."
