Adopt-a-Stream

Ever wonder what the water quality is like in the City of Greer's streams? Check out the Adopt-a Stream program!

South Carolina Adopt-a-Stream (SC AAS) creates a network of watershed stewardship, engagement, and education through involvement. SA AAS volunteers can play an important role in monitoring and tracking water quality while sharing information about local water resources with their communities. In providing baseline information about stream conditions, volunteers, local communities, educators, and local government agencies can partner to protect and restore our waters.

You do not need to be an environmentalist, fisherman, or scholar to join this effort. All are welcome to find more information, seek training, and add to the knowledgebase of river health in the City of Greer and South Carolina.

Become a Certified Volunteer in the program and you can check out monitoring kits from the City of Greer Engineering Department.
