The CCP meets quarterly. Details for our next meeting follow:

Date: Thursday, 19, 2017

Time: 9 am to 12 pm

Location: Chatham County Agriculture and Conference Center

Address: 1192 US-64 W Business


We’ll be looking at stormwater impacts. Speakers will give us an overview of what stormwater is, why it is important, and what is happening in the county to address impacts of stormwater run-off. Muddy Waters Watch is a program designed to reduce stormwater impacts of construction projects and we’ll look at post-construction stormwater retrofit projects in Siler City and Pittsboro. Homeowners and landowners will also learn about that they can do on their own properties to reduce stormwater run-off. Please the attached agenda for details.
