State of the Streams to shed new light on the Little Tennessee

After 21 years of monitoring the health of the Little Tennessee Watershed, the group most responsible for that work will release a “State of the Streams” report.

The unveiling of this report by the Little Tennessee Watershed Association will take place Thursday, July 14, at a League of Women Voters of Macon County luncheon in Franklin.

The first edition of this report covered the years 1990-2002, and contained information about each major tributary in the watershed.  

Jenny Sanders, executive director of LTWA, will present highlights from the report and explain how citizens can be involved in watershed protection.

The program will be held at Tartan Hall in Franklin and will begin at 12:15 p.m. Lunch is available at noon by reservation, for $5. The public is invited.
