The Environmental Protection Agency requires all municipalities over a certain size in the United States to provide a program to improve the quality of stormwater runoff. The City of Statesville is developing its proposed Stormwater Management Plan.
Stormwater Advisory Committee
The City of Statesville has created a Stormwater Advisory Commission (SWAC). Members of this new commission will assist in the study and creation of the City's stormwater utility.

Statesville is also completing a stormwater utility feasibility study.

Members should be a resident of, own property in or conduct business in the City of Statesville. Non-voting members will be: a member of City Council, a member from the Planning Board and the City's Assistant Public Works Director.
The SWAC meets on the third Thursday of each month at 11:30 a.m. in the City Hall Conference Room on the 3rd floor. monthly for the first year.
MEMBERSHIP: Frederick Foster, Mary Katherine Harbin, Steve Knight, Chad Lackey, Jim Lawton, Phillip Myers, Arthur Peacock, Daniel Pope, David Reese, and non-voting members Brian Long, Michael Johnson
