Green Schools Program

The Green School Program is a project of the ACC Recycling Division, ACC Public Utilities (Water Conservation), ACC Transportation and Public Works (Stormwater) and Keep Athens-Clarke County Beautiful. The Green Schools Program is designed to assist schools with environmental education and improvement efforts that focus on conservation, preservation and beautification of our environment. Annually, the program recognizes participating schools that implement exceptional environmental education and improvement programs.

Water Treatment Plant Tours

We offer tours through the JG Beacham Water Treatment Plant and Bob M. Snipes Water Resource Center to learn more about water treatment and testing.

Speakers Bureau

Is your church or community organization interested in Athens' water? We have programs on water quality, the perils of bottled water, statewide water issues, and others. We will even customize a presentation to suit your needs. We give talks to groups of all ages, a variety of background and interest level.
