Public Outreach & Education

Water Quality


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!

Stormwater Educational Booth


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 Home Owner Association 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? These are the questions Stormwater Services attempts to answer with many educational brochures, flyers, and newsletter articles distributed throughout the community. View the Stormwater Utility Fee Brochure (PDF) for more information.

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.
