SC Adopt-a-Stream


Public data accessibility is key to increasing awareness of watershed health!

SC Adopt-a-Stream volunteers collect important water quality data in waterways all around the state, and this data is most powerful when it can be shared with local communities, government, utilities, organizations, agencies, and advocates! Visit the SC Adopt-a-Stream Database to find water quality data for your watershed. Explore program successes and reports to learn more about how data can be used, what motivates volunteers, and what we can accomplish together!
