About

Help us monitor the health of a local stream near your home! There are approximately 3,000 miles of streams and 100,000 storm drains in Mecklenburg County. We have an extensive surface water quality monitoring program, but we need your help monitoring this vast network of streams and storm drains. Participating in the Volunteer Monitoring Program is also a great way to teach kids about the local environment. The Volunteer Monitoring Program welcomes individual residents, families, civic clubs, scout troops, home school educators, and college students - anyone who wants to learn more about monitoring the surface water quality of streams. If you are an elementary, middle or high school educator and you are interested in teaching your students about surface water quality, please see the contact below. A monitoring education program specifically for schools has recently been developed and may be available for your students.
