The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services (SWS) is a joint municipal/county storm water utility that includes Charlotte, the surrounding towns of Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville, Matthews, Mint Hill and Pineville and Mecklenburg County. The role of SWS is to provide year-round management of runoff from rainfall, reduce flooding, restore floodplains and protect the water quality of surface waters county-wide.
There are still shortcomings and needs that must be addressed in the SWS as it exists today. That is where the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) Flood Apex Program is ready to step in.
