Creek Improvement on Free Nancy Branch Free Nancy Branch flows through the heart of Statesville and is very important to the local environment of our community. Seeking to improve water quality and the property surrounding this creek, we are developing a plan for improving Free Nancy Branch’s stability and ecological health.

For more information or to suggest creek improvements, contact:  City of Statesville Public Works Department Stormwater Division P.O.

On Tuesday April 19th, a contractor will begin work for the South Meeting Street Culvert Replacement project.  The initial work will involve installing valves on the existing water line to prepare to replace the culvert.  A single lane traffic closure on S Meeting Street will take place between W Sharpe Street and W Bell Street.  Complete closure of S Meeting Street is expected once work to replace the culvert begins.  The City will notify affected property owners of the closure.  If citizens have any questions please contact the Stormwater Division at 866-4-1-STORM.

The City has finished this winters portion of the Stormwater Outfall Mapping Project.  We are a little over 50 percent complete for the entire project and 260 outfalls were collected as part of the stream walks. Beginning late November 2022 we will proceed with the remaining 31 miles of streams to walk. Mapping the outfalls of the City Municipal Storm Drainage System is a requirement of the MS4 Permit the City   received from the NC Department of Environmental Quality in 2016.

Beginning on November 29th, 2021, the City of Statesville will begin mapping existing stormwater outfalls within the City’s jurisdiction.  This is a requirement of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Municipal Separate Storm System (MS4) Program and is mandated under the Federal Clean Water Act.  This is a two-year project that will take place in a 3-month period each year when the leaf cover has thinned.  City of Statesville staff will be accessing properties in order to map the existing stormwater outfalls within the City's jurisdiction. This project will begin on November 29th, 2021 and run through February 25th, 2022.  The project will start back up again in the fall/winter 2022-2023.  There will be a 2-person team on these stream walks.  Here is an interactive link where citizens can put in their address and see if City staff will be accessing their properties as they map the outfalls: If property owners have any questions or concerns, please call the Stormwater Hotline at 1-866-41-STORM.
