“In Mecklenburg County, 81% of the total supporting watershed are considered unfit for their supplementary use of recreation.”
For months now the Charlotte environmental and sustainability community, including Catawba Riverkeeper, Charlotte Public Tree Fund, Sierra Club Central Piedmont Group, and Sustain Charlotte, have reached out to the Charlotte City Council and City Stormwater Staff and urged them NOT TO WEAKEN our stormwater protection.
