These analyzes aim to diagnose pollution levels throughout the watershed and to relate to different types of land use and occupation using geoprocessing technological tools, making use of Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPAs) in the imaging and identification of problems, in high definition. The analyzes have so far indicated at points downstream of the sewage treatment plant values above the environmental legislation by Escherichia coli and total Coliforms and that the sediments are enriched by Zn, Cd and Cr. It is noteworthy that the project is in progress, and that environmental education activities and watershed mo
