Why Adopt-A-Stream?

Many of High Point's urban streams are deteriorating through erosion and pollution from a wide variety of sources. Sources of pollution are often hard to detect through standard water quality monitoring. Often, the best way to find these problems is to walk the stream and pick up litter. The city needs the help of its residents to protect our streams from further pollution and in locating pollution sources.
