How Lake Water Quality Affects You - Wherever You Live


Poor water quality costs you. Charlotte-Mecklenburg
and a half-dozen communities rely on Lake Norman,
Mountain Island Lake, and Lake Wylie for raw drinking water. Polluted water often costs more to treat and 
c​an result in higher water bills.

People don't want to live or recreate near polluted
water. Pollution can also impact fish and aquatic
wildlife. Protecting our lakes maintains our economy
and our quality of life.
