Adopt-A-Stream is a volunteer long term commitment. Please visit www.concordnc.gov/streams for more information.
We ask that you commit to completing 2 stream clean-ups per year. Once you complete 2 clean-ups, we will place a sign on the public road near your stream segment, showing your group name as the group who adopted that stream segment.
Clean-A-Creek is the same as Adopt-A-Stream, but it does not require a commitment. It is just a one-time clean-up! Please view www.concordnc.gov/streams for more information!
Storm Drain Marking Program
Stormwater Services launched a Storm Drain Marking Program in 2010. 75% of North Carolinians think storm water receives treatment before it is released into local bodies of water. Actually, it flows from the street, down the storm drains and directly into those bodies of water, without ever being cleaned up! Volunteers may be seen around the City affixing placards to storm drains that say "No Dumping Drains to Creek." If you or your neighborhood would like to participate in the storm drain marking program, contact Crystal Brown at 704-920-5287 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Most neighborhoods are completed, but we can find other areas that still need to be marked!
