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 in 2006 as a forum for local storm water professionals to work collaboratively on storm water issues. Charlotte-Mecklenburg is the largest member of the 24 municipality organization.
With matching funds from each of the Partnership members, the group received a Clean Water Management Trust Fund Grant to kick off Partnership initiatives.
Activities of the Partnership over the years have included:
a media campaign involving radio and billboard advertising,
funding two water quality treatment projects in Charlotte and Gaston County,
purchasing supplies for public involvement programs in the region, and
funding quarterly Partnership meetings.
