Georgia Adopt-A-Stream has five program goals that we encourage you to ADOPT!

Woman Monitoring
  • Increase public Awareness of the State's non-point source pollution and water quality issues
  • Collect quality baseline water quality Data
  • Gather Observations
  • Encourage Partnerships between citizens and their local government
  • Provide citizens with the Tools and Training to evaluate and protect their local waterways


To accomplish these goals, Georgia Adopt-A-Stream encourages individuals and communities to monitor and/or improve sections of streams, wetlands, lakes or estuaries. Manuals, training, and technical support are provided through AAS staff and more than 70 established Adopt-A-Stream local coordinators.
