Neuse River Foundation, Inc. Overview
Programs: The Muddy Water Watch project is a state-wide initiative to reduce stormwater runoff from construction sites by providing training workshops and materials developed specifically for citizens on the North Carolina sediment and stormwater laws and requirements associated with construction activity. Polluted stormwater runoff, including sediment from poorly maintained construction sites, is the number one reason for poor water quality in North Carolina. MWW volunteers are able to properly identify sedimentation and erosion violations from active construction sites, as well as poorly maintained Best Management Practices. These volunteers help increase the frequency of routine BMP maintenance and, most importantly, are proactive in keeping mud and sediment out of NC rivers and streams by working with local inspectors and developers to oversee enforcement of sediment laws on NC construction sites.
