BENEFITING: Cumberland River Compact
EVENT DATE: Sep 09, 2017
From our earliest arrival, the river has been our lifeline, and it will continue to be the lifeline for future generations. Today, the basin’s communities are growing at an unprecedented rate. The Nashville area alone anticipates one million additional residents over the next 20 years. As the region grows, pressing new challenges, as well as opportunities, emerge. Increased demands on our water resources, recent droughts, and severe flooding have all underscored the need for broader engagement by public and private stakeholders to protect and conserve the basin’s waters.
