Do YOU know what November consists of?

November 9, 2016
Do YOU know what November consists of? BOTH National GIS Day on Wednesday, November 16, and Geography Awareness Week from Sunday, November 13 until Saturday, November 19! Athens-Clarke County Stormwater is excited to celebrate both of these because GIS (geographic information system) is an integral part of stormwater management, from creating maps of stormwater infrastructure and polluted streams, to tracking the placement of cutting edge green infrastructure. Geography is embedded into almost everything we do.

In honor of these events, YOU should take part in ACC Stormwaters official Geocache trail, “Water Logged.” Discover stormwater infrastructure and learn about ways to reduce stormwater pollution, all the while exploring Athens-Clarke County. All you need is a cell phone with GPS and internet access. Geocache instructions, hints, and coordinates can be found at www.geocaching.com.Just search for the bookmark “Water Logged.” Bring buttons from all geocache sites to the ACC Stormwater office during Geography Awareness Week to win a prize!geo
