Mission Statement

​​​​​​Established in the early 1990’s, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services is a joint municipal/county stormwater utility that includes Charlotte, the surrounding towns of Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville, Matthews, Mint Hill and Pineville, and Mecklenburg County.

Description

Storm Water Services works year-round to manage the runoff from rainfall, reduce flooding, restore floodplains and protect the water quality of surface waters county-wide. We accomplish this by:

  • Increasing drainage capacity to meet growth and development demands

  • Repairing and replacing aging storm drainage infrastructure

  • Restoring severely eroded streams and floodplains to hold excess rain

  • Mapping floodplains to protect drainage capacity and manage floodplain development

  • Responding to residents who call 3-1-1 to report drainage and flooding problems

  • Monitoring surface waters for evidence of pollutants

  • Enforcing ordinances to protect surface waters

  • Educating residents about flood safety, pollution prevention and volunteer opportunities
