Water Quality

Water Quality

Each year, Fulton County publishes the Water Quality Report, also known as a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR), which presents the analysis of the drinking water as well as other important and interesting information. We are especially happy to report that the quality of our water is excellent, having met or exceeded the standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency. Read the whole report here.

Source Water Assessment Program (SWAP)

Fulton County Department of Public Works received a source water assessment study for our drinking water supply, the Chattahoochee River. The assessment reviewed adjacent land uses that pose a potential risk to the river. The assessment found the Chattahoochee River watershed to have a medium risk of potential pollutant loads.

Water Quality Programs and Resources Adopt-A-Stream

The Adopt-A-Stream Program is a citizen's volunteer stream monitoring program that assesses the health of local waterways through chemical, physical, and biological monitoring, and through visual and watershed assessments. Volunteers are trained and certified to monitor their local streams for both chemical and biological parameters, including pH, dissolved oxygen, temperature, and macroinvertebrate surveys.

Storm Drain Marking & Adopt-A-Drain

The Storm Drain Marking and Adopt-A-Drain programs are two quick and easy ways you can make a difference in your neighborhood by keeping your waterways cleaner and helping to prevent flooding.

Stream Cleanups

You can participate in a stream cleanup either by joining an effort organized by another group, or by organizing your own event. Fulton County will help you get involved in this type of waterway protection and provide you with the supplies and support you need to make your event a success. Watershed Education

Water Resources has a variety of watershed presentations for both students and adults. We can visit your meeting, classroom, or other event with an educational, water related activity. Programs are hands-on learning experiences designed to best fit the needs of your group.
