Water Monitoring

CRBI volunteers and staff regularly collect stream health data which is reported to the Georgia Adopt-A-Stream and Alabama Water Watch citizen water monitoring programs.
By training citizens to conduct visual, chemical and biological assessments of local water bodies, CRBI enlists Coosa River residents in protecting local streams and identifying pollution problems.
