Water Professionals Appreciation Week Activities

Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources invites you to join us as we celebrate a number of events around National Drinking Water Week (May 1-7) and Water Professionals Appreciation Day (May 2).

Great Gwinnett Wetlands • April 30
9:00am to 1:00pm. Show that YOU care about Gwinnett, our environment and clean water! Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful, in partnership with Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources, will host the second annual Great Gwinnett Wetlands event. These wetlands are connected to our streams, rivers, and lakes. By working together to care for and maintain wetlands, we help protect our valuable water resources like the Chattahoochee River, the Yellow River, and Lake Lanier. Learn how to monitor the water quality of wetlands and streams, clean up litter out of local waterways, and remove invasive plants that outcompete native plants and damage the health of wetlands. The event will take place in the Bromolow Creek and Wetlands Watershed at the Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful location on Satellite Boulevard in Duluth.
