Where's Stormy
Search for Stormy while learning to prevent pollution....

Starting Monday, February 17th, and every 3rd Monday through June, Stormy the Turtle will be all over the Charlotte area trying to prevent pollution from getting into the streams and lakes he lives in. 

When you receive an email with a link showing Stormy at a location in Charlotte-Mecklenburg where storm water pollution has occurred, submit your guess of Stormy’s location.

If you guess correctly, you’ll be entered to win one of 2 great prizes each month (2 for City employees and 2 for County employees).  Think you know Charlotte-Mecklenburg geography and landmarks pretty well…we’ll see! 

With each month’s picture you’ll also receive information about the storm water pollution report that Stormy is tracking and important tips about how you can prevent pollution and get involved.

Check back here periodically to see all of the latest pictures, correct answers to Stormy’s location, and important information and tips about preventing and reporting storm water pollution.  In the meantime, please check out this page on Storm Water Services' website.
