The Macon Water Authority is joining in a statewide effort to encourage people to protect their water quality.

The MWA hosted Georgia-Adopt-A-Stream training workshops today at its support services facility.

Adopt-A-Stream is a volunteer water quality monitoring program.

The Macon Water Authority recently partnered with the department of natural resources and the environmental proetction agency to expand Adopt-A-Stream in Middle Georgia.

The free classes teach people how to evaluate local streams through chemical and bacterial monitoring methods to determine its health.

Volunteers must take a cerification test at the end of each workshop.

All data collected is sent to an online data base.
