Watershed or Aquabarn?

America Recycles Day was a big success for those of us at the water quality booth.  We were able to talk one-on-one with citizens who gave us tips on what stream they would like to see be restored and/or cleaned up within Knox County, Knoxville, and Farragut.  We also gave a few talks on what it means to be a steward of your watershed.

Knox county looks exactly like this from the view of an airplane window.  We're serious about identifying watersheds.

In other water quality news, Farragut's VRRB Adopt-A-Stream group pulled over 200 pounds of trash out of Turkey Creek this weekend.  Great job guys!

VRRB is geared up and ready to go.

In more watershed news I attended the Inaugural Watershed Symposium at the University of Tennessee today.  Frankly if I was a UT student right now I would have easily have been talked into a Watershed Studies minor today.  There were some really interesting presentations.

Until next time!
