  • Thank you for sending your comments to the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation on Franklin's water withdrawal permit

    The City of Franklin has once again reapplied for its water withdrawal permit after spending most of last year opposing TDEC's finding that the City's current permit restrictions aren't stringent enough to prevent the Harpeth's degradation.   Your voice matters!  The City's water withdrawal must not degrade the Harpeth River.


    On August 25, 2014  HRWA filed lawsuit against Franklin over Sewer Permit Violations.  Has settled with 2 other sewer plants.

  • "PROTECT OUR RIVER" campaign launches!
