Gwinnett Adopt-A-Stream Workshop

December 6, 2023 @ 4:00 pm 7:00 pm

Adopt-A-Stream Workshop

“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, co-workers, 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/programs/adopt-a-stream/.

In this training workshop, we will focus on testing the Bacterial parameters of water quality, specifically testing for E.coli levels in the waterways. With this three hour workshop, you can test for an official Georgia Adopt-a-Stream Certification in Bacterial Monitoring! For any questions, please call 770-822-5187. If you are interested in attending, please register below! Please note that for safety reasons, children under the age of 14 years old are not allowed to attend the workshops.
