Georgia Adopt-a-Stream enables citizens to collect baseline water quality data to both observe the conditions of our local streams and become more aware of pollution and water quality issues. Unfortunately, many streams in Gwinnett do not currently meet established state water quality standards. That’s why we need your help!
You and your family, coworkers, group, etc. could serve as official “keepers” of a portion of a creek or stream by periodically monitoring its condition with supplies, training and certifications in chemical, bacterial and macroinvertebrate testing provided by Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful and the Department of Water Resources. To find out more about the Adopt-a-Stream program, visit gwinnettcb.org/
This training will focus on the classroom portion of the chemical monitoring protocol. Information regarding chemical monitoring will be presented and be open to discussion from the class.
The second portion of the class will be scheduled for a mutually agreeable time between September 16-18 and will take place at a County Park with access to a stream. Upon completion of the field portion, the certification test will be administered.
