Adopt-the-Hooch

Georgia's Adopt-A-Stream Program

Since 2011, we have participated in the Georgia Environmental Division's (EPD) Adopt-A-Stream program through Adopt-the-Hooch. As part of this effort, we monitor tributaries to the Chattahoochee River testing for chemical and bacterial water quality.

In 2013, our Adopt-the-Hooch program was acknowledged by the Georgia EPD with its annual Partnership Award.
