Por­terdale Ex­plor­ers have gone one step fur­ther in work­ing to make their community a bet­ter place.

The Por­terdale Ex­plor­ers Adopt-A-Stream students are be­tween the ages of 1520, and will be com­plet­ing two full-day chem­i­cal and bi­o­log­i­cal wa­ter test­ing classes on Sept. 22 and Oct. 6 at the lo­cal Ge­or­gia Wildlife Fed­er­a­tion in Cov­ing­ton. The group has com­mit­ted to test­ing the wa­ter at the Yel­low River monthly, throughout 2013.

Along with test­ing wa­ter, the group is also set­ting a goal to get lo­cal busi­nesses or in­di­vid­ual spon­sors on board to help with cost of the test­ing kits and chem­i­cals, kayaks, ca­noes, pad­dles and life jack­ets for river ac­cess.

The group is also look­ing into get­ting as­sis­tance from other gov­ern­ment di­vi­sions with pro­vid­ing a larger van for trans­porta­tion and a kayak trailer for haul­ing boats.

Any­one in­ter­ested in help­ing the Por­terdale Ex­plor­ers, should contact Por­terdale Po­lice In­ves­ti­ga­tor Dou­glas Clifton at (770) 786-2226.
