Adopt-A-Stream

Adopt-A-Stream, near You, through Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful
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 they need your help!
You and your family/co-workers/group 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.
There are 5 easy steps to adopting a stream, lake, pond, or wetland.
Visit Gwinnett’s Adopt a Stream site to find out how to get started monitoring the water quality of a stream, pond, lake, or wetland near you!
