Public Outreach and Education

Welcome to the Indian Trail Stormwater Services Public Education and Outreach Page!

Water quality is very important to our community. Indian Trail Stormwater Services strives to maintain clean water through public education and outreach within our community. Did you know that pollutants that are washed down our stormwater drains are not treated? These pollutants go directly into our rivers and lakes. In a recent survey, 62% of respondents believe that stormwater is treated- think again!

Enviroscape Demonstrations
The Enviroscape is a great way to visually explain how stormwater pollution affects water quality in our local watersheds. Interested in having an Enviroscape demonstration at your school, Home Owners Association meeting, or civic group? Call Adam McLamb with Stormwater Services at 704-821-1314 to schedule a demonstration.

Stormwater Educational Booths
Stormwater Services strives to educate the public at any opportunity. Stormwater Services is always present at Town events such as Family Fun Day and  has also made many informational presentations at local HOA events.

Stormwater Educational Literature
What is a stormwater utility fee? How does picking up after my dog affect water quality? What is a rain barrel? TRain Barrelhese are the questions Stormwater Services attempts to answer with many educational brochures, flyers, and newsletter articles distributed throughout the community.

Watershed Education
 The Goose and Crooked Creek watersheds, located in both Union and Mecklenburg Counties, are approximately 42 and 53 square miles, respectively. Both of these watersheds extend largely into Indian Trail and our rapid growth and development have an impact on these important watersheds.
