Schools out for Summer! It’s the perfect time to get outside and join us at any of our volunteer events this month. There are also plenty of opportunities to get out on your own or with friends to volunteer. We hope to see you out there!

Volunteers Spotlight



NC Wildlife Federation


This month we would like to highlight the volunteers from the North Carolina Wildlife Federation (NCWF) for their work on our trees planted along Merriman Ave! NCWF has helped us plant several tree sites as part of Creek ReLeaf, where trees are planted in the flood plain to help prevent erosion, increase tree canopy, and provide habitat to wildlife. Last month NCWF responded very quickly to trees needing repairs after one of the heavy storms. Because of their help, the impacted trees are back to standing tall and are on their way to growing strong and healthy. Thank you NCWF!





Safe Swimming



Many of us are out enjoying our lakes around the county and it’s important to know that the waters are safe for contact. Orange water could indicate excess sediment, gray water could indicate sewage contamination, and green water could indicate a harmful algal bloom. If you come across any discolored water, please report it to 311. Always remember to wait 72 hours after a rain event to engage in water recreation in our coves. If you would like to be notified of any swim advisories in our area, text MECKNOSWIM to 888-777 to get them sent straight to your phone. We will also be posting updates all summer long on our social media pages (@StormWaterCM).





Catawba Riverkeepers Cleanup Champion Challenge 2024



The Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation is launching the Cleanup Champion Challenge this June in celebration of National Trails and Public Lands Day and to help reach their goal of removing 125,000 lbs of trash and 2000 tires from drinking water resources! By becoming a Cleanup Champion, you will be doubling your impact for your local waterways by raising funds that support mission-critical work while removing trash from either your neighborhood or a local spot that is meaningful to you.
