*The Tennessee Clean Water Network is a non-profit corporation working on behalf of the environment, clean water and public health. We believe water is the common thread that ties all life together. We believe maintaining clean water protects the health of our families and provides numerous recreational opportunities while sustaining plants, animals and aquatic life. We believe Tennessee's waters are among our most precious natural resources. Since these resources continue to be polluted by toxic and other pollutants from industry, sewage plants, runoff, and other sources, critical aquatic ecosystems will continue to be lost or degraded, and the health of our children and the health of our children and our ecosystems remain threatened. TCWN will work to protect the water resources of Tennessee.
