Stream Restoration/Enhancement Toolkit

Stream Restoration Projects improve water quality of streams, lakes, ponds and wetlands throughout Mecklenburg County. Having a safe and healthy stream system is not only beneficial to today’s family but also essential to future generations. Our goal at Storm Water Services is to have streams that are safe and clean where children can play, fish, catch bugs and experience nature.

The following Stream Restoration Toolkit was created to help residents understand the importance properly functioning streams and the natural infrastructure they provide to move stormwater.
