The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) has estimated that about 30 percent of the state's streams are of such poor water quality that they cannot support a healthy population of fish and other aquatic wildlife, and almost 40 percent are not fit for human recreation. That means that many of our streams are not fit for our children to play in and that we can no longer catch the fish that our grandparents did. It also translates into higher utility bills, with more resources going towards water treatment.

So why is our legislature eliminating controls on one of the worst polluters in our state?


We all know the answer to that. Our legislators represent MONEY not people.
