What You Can Do

Carolina Clear strives to meet the needs of all audiences. In doing so, it is important to understand that different audiences have different needs. The information below is organized by audience, though many of these activities can be a consideration in all of our daily lives. After all, stormwater pollution is People Pollution!


Stormwater 101

For more information about stormwater, visit the Stormwater 101 page.


As a homeowner, you are responsible for your property's environmental impact. If you live along a stream or lake, you have an even greater responsibility to protect this water resource for everyone downstream. For more information on how home owners can prevent stormwater pollution, visit the Residents page.

Restaurant Owners & Staff

Restaurants produce FOG (fat, oil, and grease), a major factor in most kitchens. FOG often finds its way down the drain, which can be devastating to our environment and lead to compliance issues for restaurants.For information on how restaurant owners can prevent stormwater polution, visit the Restaurant Owners page.
