Safeguarding Clean Water
We protect land along key streams and reservoirs to keep drinking water clean for our expanding population and economy. These lands create a buffer between developed areas and waterways, and serve as nature’s filter, absorbing pollutants before they reach the water supply.
TLC is viewed as a go-to resource for enhancing water quality by local governments.
TLC is an active leader in water quality efforts, including the Upper Neuse Clean Water Initiative which focuses on conserving nine different water resources and protects the drinking supply for 500,000 Triangle residents.
