During the years 1986, 1987, and 1988, the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) has taken part in five urban stream monitoring projects, together with five local governments: Cobb County, DeKalb County, and the cities of Atlanta, Chamblee, and Marietta. The objectives of each project were: (1) to walk and sample a stream section and its adjacent area in order to identify apparent pollution sources; (2) to institute corrective actions to eliminate the problems; (3) to assess the water quality of each stream; and (4) to use the information to help other governments develop stream monitoring programs.
