NPDES Educational Programs

The Environmental Protection Agency outlined the following two minimum measures that must be followed by the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County and the six Towns as part of their NPDES permits for education and involvement:

Public Education and Outreach
Distributing educational materials and performing outreach to inform citizens about the impacts polluted storm water runoff discharges can have on water quality.

Public Participation/Involvement
Providing opportunities for citizens to participate in program development and implementation, including effectively publicizing public hearings and/or encouraging citizen representatives on a storm water management panel.
