County Country

The AmeriCorps Water Quality Team of Knox County/Knoxville invited me out for a little assessment of Sinking Creek today.  Sinking Creek is on Tennessee’s 2006 303(d) list of impaired waters due to concerning amounts of e-coli present.  While only a very small part of Sinking Creek enters Farragut proper, this was an excellent opportunity to work with colleagues representing the Knox County perspective of water quality assessment.

Chessa uses a GPS device to note discharges in the stream and indicators of stream health.

Wherever there is land and water invasive species will find a way.

As the self-proclaimed Storm Drain Superhero I declare this my new secret lair.  Well, I guess it isn't a secret anymore.
Map. Look. Map. Assess. Look. Map.
