DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management (DWM) has launched an internship program at DeKalb Academy of Technology and Environment (DATE) Middle and Charter Schools Inc.

DWM’s engineering staff designed the 10-week STEM curriculum. Lessons, experiments and on-site demonstrations will focus on daily watershed operations in the following areas:


  • Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) Elimination Program
  • Water treatment processes
  • Wastewater treatment processes
  • Hydraulics
  • Closed circuit TV using robotic equipment
  • Water sampling and testing
  • Water tower inspection using drones
