Where Does Rain Go? Find Your Watershed Community Service Videos: Easy Ways to Protect Waterways Show How You're Taking Action
Help us celebrate Clean Water Education Partnership's (CWEP) Regional Creek Week! Events and activities are from March 13 - March 20, 2021. Use these resources to learn about clean water and why it is so important to our communities and the environment.
Where Does Rain Go?
Did you know that when it rains, water picks up all types of pollution that flows to streets and storm drains? This includes:
- Pet waste;
- Motor oil and gasoline; and,
- Sediment or mud.
Do your part to make sure only rain goes down the drain. Pick up your trash and report water pollution. You'll help keep our waterways clean.

There are 37 different watersheds in Raleigh. Find out which one you live in. Then sign up for community service to help protect and keep your neighborhood beautiful.
