Adopt a Stream

Adopting a stream is a great way to improve Durham’s waterways. By hosting stream cleanups and monitoring the stream on a regular basis, you will be making a big difference.

Here's how:
  1. Choose a level (PDF) ​based on your time and interest.
  2. Fill out a proposal (PDF) and email it to the Stormwater Public Education Coordinator.
  3. Start reporting your results!
