The City of Ann Arbor uses HRWC Adopt-A-Stream data for its “State of Our Environment Report.”  An article in the Ann Arbor Chronicle highlights the work done by the City over the past several years to create this citizen’s reference tool.  The report focuses on environmental issues and management strategies underway that are  intended to conserve and protect our environment.  In particular the City has developed a series of environmental indicators that gauge the quality of our air, water, resource use, climate, natural ecosystems, and many others.   Most of the information for the City’s river and creek indicators come from data collected by HRWC Adopt-a-Stream volunteers and analyses done by HRWC staff.
