Our Programs

Adopt-A-Stream

Adopt-A-Stream is CRWC’s volunteer water quality monitoring program. CRWC volunteers sample, test and record the water’s physical habitat, biological community, and channel characteristics such as erosion and the amount of streamside vegetation. CRWC provides volunteers with all the training and equipment needed to participate in Adopt-A-Stream.

Stream Leaders

Stream Leaders, a water quality monitoring program for students, does just that. It helps students gain an in-depth understanding of their natural world and how it affects them, while promoting interdisciplinary learning. Students learn skills that are useful and relevant outside of school, and are encouraged to become informed, responsible citizens and life-long learners.

Stormwater Education

Stormwater pollution is the greatest source of water quality impairments in the Clinton River and its tributaries. In more densely developed areas of the watershed, where there is a large percentage of impervious surface (rooftops, roads, sidewalks, lawns, etc.), the effects of stormwater pollution are particularly evident. Stormwater Pollution prevention tips are available to educate the public on how to help. We also offer educational presentations & workshops.

This permit program affects over 170 communities in Southeast Michigan and is administered by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
