Local governments are teaming up to meet the challenges of managing storm water runoff and protecting water quality.
The Regional Storm Water Partnership was formed through the Centralina Council of Governments as a forum for local storm water professionals to work collaboratively on storm water issues. Charlotte-Mecklenburg is the largest member of the 18 municipality organization.
With matching funds from each of the Partnership members, the group received a Clean Water Management Trust Fund Grant.
The grant is being used to:
- continue a media campaign involving radio and billboard advertising
- fund two "in-the-ground" projects in Charlotte and in Gaston County
- purchase supplies for public involvement programs in the region
- fund quarterly Partnership meetings.
