1) TCWN WORKING FOR YOU! Water Quality Standards Update
TCWN appreciates the support of the many organizations and individuals who have attended public meetings, submitted written comments, and contacted Water Quality Control Board members to voice their support for the proposed antidegradation rules. However, our work isn't finished yet. The Water Quality Control Board will be meeting on June 24 in Nashville. At this meeting, it is likely that the Board will be voting on whether or not to approve the new rules. We know that industry opposition is very strong, and we need your help to ensure that all of our hard work doesn't get overturned. We need to continue to send a strong message to the Water Quality Control Board that there are citizens, businesses, and communities in Tennessee that depend on and value clean water and that the proposed antidegradation rules are not only good policy and good government but they are legally required as part of the Clean Water Act. Please make an effort to attend the meeting on June 24 to demonstrate your support for protecting our state's high quality waters. If you would like additional information on this issue or how you can get involved, please email [email protected]

2) PUBLIC PARTICIPATION OPPORTUNITY: Transit Plan Regional Meetings
The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) has begun work on "Transit for Tennessee 2025," a comprehensive study of public transit in Tennessee over the next 22 years. The statewide public transit plan will establish a vision and a series of goals for transit in Tennessee in 2025, including the goal of doubling transit ridership. TDOT wants to hear from you! What kind of public transit will the state have in 2025? Will the elderly continue to have transportation? How does urban sprawl and suburbanization affect transit use? How will we pay for new and better transit service? Come tell TDOT what you think! Each of the meetings listed below is an opportunity to find out what has been accomplished in the plan so far and tell TDOT what your vision for transit is for 2025. (All meetings have the same agenda and presentation.)

3) PUBLIC PARTICIPATION OPPORTUNITY: Public Hearing on SR-840 Permits in Williamson County
The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, Division of Water Pollution Control will hold a public hearing on Thursday, June 5, 2003 at 6:00 P. M. CDT at Fairview High School, 2595 Fairview Blvd, Fairview, Tennessee, 37062. The purpose of the public hearing is to solicit public comments regarding an application by Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) for Aquatic Resource Alteration Permits pursuant to the Tennessee Water Quality Control Act of 1977 and §401 Water Quality Certifications pursuant to the federal Clean Water Act (Permit Number NRS02.350) for the proposed construction of 6.43 miles of SR-840 from southwest of SR-100 to west of Bending Chestnut Road in Williamson County, Tennessee.

TDOT is seeking permits that would authorize stream and wetlands crossings along the proposed alignment. These crossings would include Copperas Branch, White Oak Branch, South Harpeth Creek, Kelly Creek, unnamed tributaries of the South Harpeth River and Turnbull Creek. Impacts to all waters would be in headwaters in the vicinity of the Duck/Harpeth River watershed divide.

A Joint Public Notice (P/N 02-75) was issued by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on November 8, 2002 concerning the proposed project. That notice can be reviewed via the internet at: http://www.orn.usace.army.mil/cof/notices/02-75.pdf

A previous public hearing was held in Williamson County on January 14, 2003. Issues that arose during the first public hearing concerning the legibility of diagrams contained in the original notice, failure to provide written notice to interested parties, and the water quality status of certain waters resulted in a decision by the division to issue, concurrently, a second Public Notice (PN#03-30) of the proposed permits and this notice for a second public hearing.

Persons wishing to comment on the proposed project are invited to deliver oral or written comment at the public hearing. The hearing officer will limit all testimony to relevant water quality issues and may limit testimony in the interest of time, however, all persons desiring to speak will be afforded an opportunity to do so. The public is also invited to submit comments in writing to the Division at the address printed below. The comments must be received by close of business on June 9, 2003. After considering all public comments, a final permit decision and a notice of the Division's determinations will be announced. The permit application and supporting documentation are available for review at the Division office during business hours at the following address:

5) NEWS: U.S. Report Faults Efforts to Track Water Pollution
The computer system used by the Environmental Protection Agency to track and control water pollution is obsolete, full of faulty data and does not take into account thousands of significant pollution sources, according to a new government report. Efforts to modernize the program have been mismanaged for several years, said the report, issued last week by the E.P.A.'s inspector
general. While the cost to fix the problem has been soaring, the amount of money dedicated to the project has been shrinking. The new system was supposed to come online this month, but because of its many problems it will be at least three years before the agency and the states can properly manage the enormous system of permits that is the basic tool for enforcing the Clean Water Act. The report is the latest in a series of investigations over the years into the law's enforcement, many of them severely critical of the E.P.A. This time, the inspector general's office found that because of continuing mismanagement, "the future viability" of the system of permits "may be endangered."

The flaws in the system and the delays in fixing it are jeopardizing one of the E.P.A.'s main new water pollution control strategies, which calls for granting new permits only after considering
how much pollution is already flowing into a watershed. Without comprehensive data, that approach is next to impossible. Eighteen states use the system as their primary tool for enforcing the federal law, a responsibility that is often handled by state governments. The cost of modernizing the system is relatively small for a federal project - less than $14 million as of two years ago, according to the report. But the report said that the E.P.A. Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance in its first analysis had "greatly understated the costs to finish the project." The report said that the Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance had only two-thirds of the money needed to complete the project, which is scheduled for September 2006 if the financing sought in next year's fiscal budget is approved.

6) NEWS: River Network Announces Second Year of RiverSmart, Nation's Largest Campaign for Clean Rivers, Drinking Water
Swiss Re, a leading reinsurer, and River Network, a leading US conservation organization, announced they are launching for the second consecutive year, RiverSmart, the nation's largest public education campaign for clean rivers and drinking water.

The RiverSmart campaign is aimed at dispelling America's misperceptions regarding river pollution and its effects on clean drinking water, fish and wildlife. Through a three-year television, radio and print advertising campaign and a national outreach effort, RiverSmart encourages individuals to change everyday behaviors to ensure healthy rivers and clean drinking water. River Network has established a Web site for the multi-year campaign at

7) NEWS: Georgia Antidegradation Decision
A Georgia state court recent ruled that regulators were required by the Clean Water Act's antidegradation policy to demonstrate that discharges that degrade a waterbody's water quality are necessary to issue a Clean Water Act discharge permit.

In Terence D. Hughey, et al. v. Environmental Protection Division, Georgia Department of Natural Resources and Gwinnett County, environmentalists charged that the agency violated antidegradation provisions by issuing a discharge permit without showing that it was
necessary to support important economic or social development.

8) NEWS: Bill Introduced to Provide $30 Million For Research Into Harmful Algal
Blooms
Legislation that would provide about $30 million per year on research to better respond to and control the problems caused by harmful algal blooms was introduced April 30. Rep. Vernon Ehlers (R-Mich.), chairman of the House Science Subcommittee on Environment, Technology and Standards, introduced the Harmful Algal Bloom and Hypoxia Research Amendments Act of 2003 (H.R. 1856) to reauthorize and strengthen a law with similar goals enacted in 1998. Ehlers' subcommittee heard testimony March 13 on the problem associated with harmful algal blooms (HABs) in both marine and freshwater ecosystems. A companion bill (S. 247) was introduced in the Senate Jan. 29 by Sens. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) and John Breaux (D-La.). Unlike the 1998 law, which only addressed the problems of HABs in marine and coastal waters, the bill introduced by Ehlers would also address those in freshwater.

9) ACTION: Endorse the Clean Water Authority Restoration Act
The Clean Water Network is asking all of its members and friends to endorse the Clean Water Authority Restoration Act of 2003 (H.R. 962 and S. 473). CWN's goal is at least 1,000 groups signed-on in support of the bill. These endorsements are vital for gaining co-sponsors and votes,
by showing Congress members that organizations in their own state and districts support the bill.

The Clean Water Authority Restoration Act addresses the 2001 US Supreme Court SWANCC decision, in which a 5-4 majority ruled that Congress did not intend Clean Water Act protections to extend to so-called "isolated" waters solely because they are used as migratory bird habitat. The bill would make it clear that the Act does cover such waters.

CWN's message to the administration and members of Congress is: we must maintain the historical level of federal protection for US waters.
1. The Bush administration and the agencies must not move forward with the proposed rulemaking that would eliminate Clean Water Act protections for many of the nation's streams, ponds, wetlands and other waters.
2. EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers must rescind their January 15, 2003 guidance memo on the scope of the Clean Water Act, because it goes well beyond the Supreme Court's ruling in the SWANCC case and fails to protect waters that are still covered by the Clean Water Act.
3. Members of Congress should co-sponsor the Clean Water Authority Restoration Act (H.R. 962 and S. 473) to reaffirm Congress' original intent in 1972 to protect all waters of the U.S., and prevent future, unwarranted attacks on the scope of the Clean Water Act.

To endorse the Clean Water Authority Restoration Act, please fill out the form below by Friday, June 6, and email it to [email protected] or fax it to 202-289-1060. Contact Ryan Hamilton if you have any questions at (202) 289-2421.

10) EVENT: Middle Tennessee Environmental Forum
The next Middle Tennessee Regional Environmental Forum will be June 10, 2003, 5-7 pm, in the auditorium of the Nashville Public Library (main/downtown branch). Sign-in/refreshments will begin at 5:00 pm in the foyer outside the library auditorium, with the formal part of the meeting agenda starting at 5:30 sharp. Please mark your calendars now and plan to attend!

This second Forum gathering will focus on the two issues that received the most votes at our first meeting (March 6) in response to the question, "What are the Most Important Environmental Issues In Middle Tennessee" - namely, "Sprawl" (aka, Growth/Development); and Water Quality. Specifically, we want to examine the relationship between these two issues. The meeting will begin with two short (15-20 minute) informative presentations that will look at both the scope of these two issues in Middle Tennessee and how they are related, as well as some possible strategies/solutions. This will be followed by a facilitated panel discussion and interactive Q&A session with all participants. Both the presenters and panelists will represent a wide range of expertise in pertinent areas including water quality/watershed management, growth/development, and regional planning.

A detailed agenda is still being developed and will follow shortly; for now, mark your calendars for June 10, and feel free to invite anyone else you know who might be interested in these issues and/or in participating in the Forum. If you have any questions or comments, please contact:
