Duke Energy, Watershed Ecology Center Team Up to Bring Adopt-a-Stream to Spartanburg County
As one of Duke Energy’s Water Resources Fund recipients, Watershed Ecology Center developed the Adopt-a-Stream program for Spartanburg County, and is working with local volunteers and students who have become certified water quality monitors. Thanks to their efforts, Spartanburg County can now monitor and address water quality issues more quickly.
The funding for AAS for Spartanburg County has allowed the Watershed Ecology Center to assume a more active role in water monitoring in the County and a more active role in AAS in South Carolina. The secondary education teachers who have kits now have a simple tool to demonstrate water quality to their students. This is a win-win for our community.
