Project Updates

November 2023

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services is working with D&A Wolverine and their surveyor, Survey & Mapping Control, Inc. to evaluate the storm drainage system in the Lanier area. 

Representatives may need to enter your property to collect survey data on the existing system. While state law authorizes access to private property, no building or structure will be entered. 

The survey work is scheduled to begin in November and take about 3 months to complete.
