- A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
18 people are interested
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).
