Stormwater Management

If you have a complaint about a Stormwater Pollution problem, please contact the City of Mebane at 919-563-5901.

The City of Mebane is working to protect our local streams from being damaged by stormwater pollution.  When it rains, pollutants such as fertilizer, oil, grease and pet waste are picked up from the ground and carried into the nearest storm drain down the street. The storm drains are not connected to a treatment system, so everything that flows down the drain goes directly to the nearest water body.

You can make a difference and help us keep our local waters clean. As a visitor to this site you've already taken the first step – getting informed. Step two – get involved by doing one or more of the following:

  • Adopt a couple of clean water habits to reduce pollution from your home.
  • Adopt a couple of clean water habits to reduce pollution from your business.
  • Get involved with local projects and volunteer opportunities.
  • Report stormwater problems.

The City has formed a partnership with other local municipalities to educate about stormwater pollution.  To learn more about stormwater and ways you can help, please visit
