Protecting the Carolinas’ waterways
Water is a shared natural resource that connects us all. To keep our waterways healthy, it takes communities coming together with a shared commitment to protect and restore our water resources.
Duke Energy is proud to support the countless water stewards in our communities who are implementing innovative projects that protect our natural resources. In 2014, we established the Water Resources Fund, a $10 million, multiyear commitment to leave a lasting impact on our region’s waterways by expanding nonprofit partnerships and enhancing the environments where families live, play and work.
Since the Fund’s inception, Duke Energy has supported 73 projects in the Carolinas and Virginia with more than $6 million in grants. These projects have improved water quality, quantity and conservation, enhanced habitats, expanded public use and access and educated community members about their role in protecting water resources.
