Since 1996 this program has been responsible for monitoring up to 27 streams in Haywood County. Haywood Waterways uses this information to help us locate areas where there needs to be work to improve water quality. Once a stream has been identified as having a problem, HWA writes grants to obtain funding that will support projects to correct the problem(s). The information collected from this program is in no way used to locate polluters.
