The 2012 Mecklenburg County State of the Environment Report, which assesses the county’s progress in air, water, land and waste management, is now online at http://charmeck.org/mecklenburg/county/LUESA/soer/Pages/default.aspx.
The semiannual report takes a comprehensive look at environmental accomplishments since 1987.
“Mecklenburg County has opportunities for residents to become a part of the decision-making process and reduce negative environmental impact,” said Heidi Pruess, environmental policy administrator for Mecklenburg County. “The State of the Environment Report is a tool for understanding our environmental condition while identifying strategies for ensuring that we have clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and healthy land on which to live and recreate.”
