Saturday Creek Clean Up

To volunteer at this project, please visit: https://charlottenc.gov/StormWater/Volunteer/Pages/VolunteerEvents.aspx

The project is no longer managed by Hands On Charlotte

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Each year volunteers remove nine tons of trash in streams throughout Charlotte and Mecklenburg County! While this may seem like a lot, we still need more help! There’s approximately 3,000 miles of streams throughout Mecklenburg County and there’s always a lot of trash that ends up in streams after a storm. ​

Rain washes trash from streets into the storm drainage system that leads directly to ponds, streams and lakes. Sometimes people dump trash directly into waterways on purpose. Trash makes our streams and lakes look terrible and harms aquatic habitat. Chemicals that may be in the trash can also degrade water quality. 


About the Organization/Project: This agency maintains and restore good water quality condition in our lakes and streams insuring the protection of our drinking water supply reservoirs and enhancing the overall usability of Mecklenburg County's surface water.
