Help us reach our goal of marking all of the storm drains in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County! Volunteer to help glue decals onto storm drains that say, "This Drain is ​Only for Rain. Do Not Dump-Drains to Creek". Please visit the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Service's Storm Drain Marking website for more information. ​​

For this event, CMSWS staff will have a table set up at the entrance to the Mint Museum for volunteers to come collect supplies and a map of a nearby neighborhood to drive to and glue out decals on the storm drains.

No need to register, just show up ready to help!

For more information email Ashley Smith (Ashley.Smith@MeckNC.gov).
