The State of the Environment Report was established in 1987 with the purpose of describing Mecklenburg County's current environmental status for the public and the Board of County Commissioners; to give the County objective measures to evaluate progress toward a clean, healthy environment; to highlight the major issues facing the County; and recommend direction concerning those issues.

Be aware that North and South Carolina issued fish consumption advisories for local waters effective January 6, 2011. Please follow these fish consumption guidelines. The information on page 73 of the 2010 State of the Environment Report was written before these advisories were issued.
