Without water, there can be no life. Without clean water, there can be no healthy life.

Water is at the core of today’s most pressing issues—security and scarcity, energy and climate change, the cause and spread of infectious disease. Communities are looking for ways to protect this right, as the quality and quantity of water resources decline around the world.

Tennessee Riverkeeper is aligned with over 190 similar Waterkeeper organizations around the world to defend the River and its tributaries by educating the public and enforcing environmental laws.
