Enforcement and Litigation

Tennessee Riverkeeper works to strengthen the laws and regulations that protect the Tennessee river by challenging the illegal activities polluters.

Comments and Letters

Tennessee Riverkeeper also battles pollution by commenting on Clean Water Act permits and proposed environmental regulations. By advocating for stronger permits and stricter laws and enforcement, Tennessee Riverkeeper can help reduce pollution before it becomes an illegal violation.
