Pollution Prevention & Good Housekeeping
The aim of the pollution prevent and good housekeeping program is to prevent or reduce stormwater pollution from municipal operations.
As part of the program the Town annually reviews and inventory's activities that could result in potential pollutant runoff. This includes Town owned facilities, operations, stormwater system and BMPs. A training program has been established to educate appropriate employees on clean water issues and workplace responsibilities to reduce or eliminate pollutants from stormwater.

In 2016, the Town completed a multi-phase watershed assessment for the entire Town (Jordan Lake watershed & Neuse River Basin). This study included an existing conditions assessment of all streams and stormwater outfalls. It also included identification of potential restoration opportunities of streams, riparian buffers, outfalls, and stormwater control measures. Detailed hydrology, hydraulic, and flooding calculations/evaluations was not within the scope of this study.
