Stormwater Quality Special Projects

The Stormwater Quality unit performs special projects to better understand water quality issues in Durham and prevent water pollution. 

We have studied the impact of street sweepers on water quality (it's big!). We've used dogs to detect and locate fecal bacteria to minimize this kind of pollution in Northeast Creek. And we've started a project to help transition City residents in Northeast Creek from a septic system to a public sanitary sewer connection.
