The Environmental Council is a volunteer-based advisory body that provides the Board of Commissioners with recommendations on policies and procedures that ultimately preserve and protect Griffin’s natural resources for future generations. The council meetings are every 1 st Thursday of the month in the City Manager’s Conference Room and anyone is invited to attend.
S.T.R.E.A.M (Stormwater Training for Regional Engineers And Municipalities) is an annual workshop that provides an opportunity for those tasked with protecting Georgia’s water resources and responsible for the management of stormwater at the local level to come together with subject matter experts from the private sector, regulatory community, and academia to share our knowledge and experiences to better overcome our common challenges in sustainably managing our urban watersheds.
Registration and Information: This year we’ve partnered with NPDES Training Institute for our Annual S.T.R.E.A.M and BMP Demonstration Field Day.

The City of Griffin Stormwater Division holds an annual Stream Clean-up Event in which citizens, organization, and any other volunteers can assist in cleaning local streams. Details of the next event coming soon.
Adopt-A-Stream is a volunteer-based program under the Nonpoint Source Program in the Water Protection Branch of the Georgia Environmental Protection Division. This program encourages individuals and communities to monitor section of streams through training workshops and help improve your local bodies of water. This established and effective program has been implemented within the city and will continue to curtail the water quality preservation program supported by Griffin. To volunteer and learn more about upcoming workshops, please contact Alexa Robinson at 770-467-4225.
