Albany--A campaign to keep Dougherty County's water supply clean is underway.

Volunteers with Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful began placing round, green markers near storm drains today.

They plan to place approximately 20,000 markers throughout the county. Organizers hope the markers will remind people to avoid dumping harmful substances, like motor oil or pesticides near drainage systems.

Miller Brewing Company helped fund Phase One of the campaign.

"It's important to us, the people, and the citizens of Albany to have clean, fresh water, all this water goes directly to the river with no treatment," says David Dixon, with Miller Brewing.

Volunteers say the harmful substances flow directly into the Flint River contaminating our water sources and negatively impacting aqautic life.
