Being able to combine the love of working around water, a strong understanding of erosion control, and desire to have a positive impact on nature has driven the continued success of North State Environmental to be a nationally recognized, and extremely experienced stream restoration firm. www.nsenv.com/
Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Utilities
The City/County Utilities Division provides high quality water and sewer services to approximately 358,000 residential users in its service area. It operates three water-treatment plants with combined capacity of 91 gallons a day, drawn from the Yadkin River and Salem Lake. Last year these plants treated and pumped a total of 13.1 billion gallons of water that met or exceeded all state and federal standards for drinking water quality. The water distribution system includes 2,227 miles of water distribution mains, 14 water tanks and seven pumping stations. The division also operates two wastewater treatment plants with a combined treatment capacity of 51 million gallons per day. The collection system includes approximately 1,708 miles of sewer lines, 49 pumping stations and three chemical odor control stations. The sewage plants treated 11.33 billion gallons of wastewater.
The Utilities Division staff works hard to meet or exceed the requirements mandated by the North Carolina Clean Water Act that regulate the collection system operations, and the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits that regulate the operation of the treatment plants.

Forsyth County Soil & Water Conservation District
Soil- and water-conservation districts have their roots in the Dust Bowl era of the 1930s, when the mechanization of farm equipment led to the rapid erosion of soil and loss of topsoil. The districts helped farmers come up with ways to conserve their land and prevent sediment runoff from polluting streams. Though Forsyth County has become more urbanized, the district's mission of preserving water quality and preventing erosion remains the same. But instead of just farmers, district supervisors are now reaching out more to people who live in cities and suburbs. Forsyth.cc/CES/Conservation/
