Network News

February 2020

This month we are sharing updates on Network leadership and upcoming events (films screenings, webinar, and workshop). Planning for our 2020 meeting in Chattanooga has commenced. We will be circulating a Save the Date shortly!

The mission of the Tennessee River Basin Network is to inspire and empower people of the Tennessee River Basin to effectively steward the region's aquatic biodiversity. 

Partner Spotlight

City of Chattanooga - Water Quality Program
The City of Chattanooga's Water Quality Program manages Chattanooga's stormwater, natural water bodies, and green infrastructure. They support a wide range of programs from their Green Grants (funding to assist property owners with the design and construction of green infrastructure to improve water quality) to their Single Family Residential Ponds Program (an initiative to improve privately
owned stormwater retention ponds and educate citizens about stormwater control measures). The Water Quality Program has been a partner of the Tennessee River Basin Network since day one. Kimberly Strong, a Public Information Specialist, with the City of Chattanooga, visits with us about the Water Quality Program and why the City is a partner of the Tennessee River Basin Network.
