Reporting storm water problems and violations helps to keep your community storm water clean! Please report all issues, concerns and violations to the Water Resources Director at (910) 497-3390.
There are many sources of storm water pollution including automotive fluids, brake dust, grass clippings, garbage, etc. These materials are generated everyday and combine to create an unhealthy mess that contaminates our local waters.
The storm drains are not connected to a treatment system, so everything that flows down the drain goes directly to the nearest water body, ultimately flowing into the ocean.
Volunteer for an Adopt-a-Stream program or Storm Drain Stenciling Program. Teachers and educators are always welcome to contact the Storm water technician/Water Resources Manager to speak in to your class about storm water

Polluted storm water runoff is the number one cause of water pollution in North Carolina which creates numerous costs to the public and to wildlife. Spring Lake storm water has created the Connect the Drops public outreach campaign to provide information on storm water, pollution and ways to increase the water quality of the surrounding area. The informational sheet to the right illustrates the type of pollutants that can be collected and deposited into local water ways by storm water runoff. As always, if you have any questions please call either the Storm water Administrator or the Water Resources Manager for more information on ways you can help to reduce pollutants in storm water runoff. While citizens, businesses and industry are working to prevent storm water pollution, the Town of Spring Lake is busy doing the same. In 2005, we received a Phase II Storm water permit that requires that we develop and implement a storm water management program that includes the following measures: *To show our residents and business owners how together we can prevent and reduce our storm water pollution *To involve residents in developing and implementing our local storm water program *To look for and remove unlawful discharges to the storm water sewer system *To regulate any and all new development activities to ensure that they provide the appropriate treatment for our storm water before it reaches our local waterways *To reduce and eliminate pollution resulting from our everyday activities
