Western North Carolina's gateway to stormwater information and local programs and regulations.

Clear mountain streams, healthy drinking water, beautiful lakefronts, vibrant fishing runs . . .
Our water resources are one of Western North Carolina's most precious assets.

Excellent water quality is important for our own high quality of life, for the economic benefit of attracting tourism and growth, and for the ecological value of healthy aquatic communities.

Stormwater runoff is our most serious water pollution problem.

Local governments are taking steps to manage stormwater runoff and protect water quality. We need everyone's help. See Daily Decisions for things you can do at home to protect water quality, and make sure to report illegal discharges and dumping.
