1) TCWN WORKING FOR YOU! Water Quality Standards
TCWN, along with several other environmental organizations and citizens, attended the Water Quality Control Board meeting on July 22-23. At this meeting, the Board was presented with the proposed revisions to the state's water quality standards. Included in the proposed standards are important revisions to the state's antidegradation statement, which will provide much-needed protections for Tennessee's higher quality waters. The environmental community was generally supportive of the standards recommended to the Board and hoped to get a vote at the meeting. However, industry representatives proposed last minute changes which would have significantly weakened the proposed antidegradation procedures. Environmental interests expressed strong opposition to the consideration of these last minute changes and the poor public process involved.

After two days of presentations, comments, and deliberation, the Water Quality Control Board decided to postpone the vote until their August meeting. In the meantime, environmental and industry representatives will be meeting to try to gain consensus on certain components of the antidegradation statement. The remainder of the standards have been unofficially accepted as they are by the Board.

We appreciate the support of citizens throughout the state who have attended hearings, submitted comments, written letters, and made phone calls in support of strong antidegradation rules for TN. This work has already made a difference, and we are a big step closer to finalizing these important new regulations. Thanks for all the hard work!!

You can read a good article in the Tennesssean about the meeting:

2) ACTION ALERT: Stop Mountaintop Removal in East Tennessee!
The Office of Surface Mining and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation have approved permits for cross ridge mining on Zeb Mountain in Campbell County, Tennessee. Robert Clear Coal Corporation had already begun work on the haul roads before the permits were approved. Cross ridge mining is an experimental variation of mountain top removal, which has devastated homes and the environment throughout Appalachia. Floods and landslides threaten the countryside surrounding such an operation. Sediment containing mercury, arsenic, and lead will destroy surrounding streams and drinking water. Three streams on the south side of Zeb Mountain drain into Lick Fork creek, which is home to Blackside Dace, an Endangered Species. Blasting will crack windows and damage the foundations and wells of the nearly 100 homes within half a mile of the mine site. In addition, the Royal Blue Wildlife Management area is only 4 miles away. Robert Clear Coal has been cited numerous times for violations of environmental regulations. During one 10-month period, a mining company owned by Robert Clear was cited twice for operating outside of its permitted area and once for improper monitoring of blasting operations.

Take action to stop these damaging activities. Call or write to Governor Bredesen.

Dear Governor Bredesen;

I am concerned about a new method of surface mining called "Cross Ridge Mining." "Cross Ridge Mining" is largely a new word for mountain top removal. It is a variation of Mountain Top Removal, in which all or most of a mountain is removed, and then the operator purports to put the mountain back to approximate original contour. I'm particularly concerned about the proposed strip mining of Zeb Mountain in Campbell and Scott Counties that uses- in this case, mining through the 3 peaks of Zeb Mountain. There are over 100 homes within 1/2 mile and an
elementary school just over 1/2 mile away. This area has been prone to flooding in the past. I don't want to see the devastation that has happened in West Virginia happen in Tennessee.

I am asking you to help by considering the potential damage that can occur with these experimental strip mining methods in a heavily populated rural area, and relaying your concerns to TDEC. I am also asking that you do not allow what has occurred in West Virginia and Kentucky to occur here. Please keep mountain top removal out of Tennessee!

7) NEWS: EPA Proposes New Drinking Water Rules
The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed new rules to safeguard drinking water from byproducts formed during chemical disinfection and from a parasite spread by human and animal waste. EPA officials also decided against adding more contaminants to the list of about 90 that the government already regulates in drinking water. The agency concluded that for nine of 60 unregulated contaminants there was no need to create new drinking water standards. The other 51 contaminants are still being studied.

Environmentalists raised concerns Tuesday that perchlorate, a toxic part of solid rocket fuel that has contaminated water supplies in at least 22 states, wasn't among the contaminants whose studies were completed first. EPA is required by Congress to study only five unregulated contaminants every five years. At that rate, according to water experts at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), EPA probably will not issue any new enforceable standards for perchlorate - or any other of the unregulated contaminants - until at least 2010.

One of the EPA rules proposed Friday would require communities to improve their water treatment plants' ability to monitor for and protect against cryptosporidium, a waterborne parasite that killed 100 people in Milwaukee in 1993 but is most common in developing countries. Water systems would also be required to use better filters or create buffer strips to protect watersheds. Annually, that would add up to $1.68 to the average household's yearly water bills, EPA estimates. To guard against disinfection byproducts, which form when organic matter reacts with chlorine and other disinfectants added to reduce microbes, EPA would require water treatment systems to monitor and document where the highest concentrations are in their pipelines. Both rules would take effect by mid-2004. NRDC criticized the byproducts rule proposal because it would allow states to make case-by-case decisions using only EPA guidance about whether to require more action.

10) EVENT: Watershed Restoration Institute, Sept. 21-26, 2003, Reisterstown, MD
Registration deadline extended - still a few spots open! The Watershed Restoration Institute is an intensive six-day program developed by the Center for Watershed Protection, River Network, and several other cooperating organizations to equip local urban watershed leaders with the skills and tools to plan, design and implement effective restoration programs in their home watersheds.
The Watershed Restoration Institute is more than just a conference! The goal is to provide an intensive, interactive learning experience within a committed community of watershed advocates, leaving participants with skills that they can immediately begin using to make their own organizations and agencies more effective. Most of the sessions at the Institute will be
interactive, with hands-on training both in the field and in computer labs. Lecturing will be kept to a minimum, and additional time will be allocated to focus on local issues in participants' home watersheds in small group settings. While the focus of the Institute is on urban watershed issues,
participants from primarily rural or agricultural watersheds are welcome to attend as well.
For more information and a registration form, go to: http://www.cwp.org/Watershed_Institute.htm

11) EVENT: Drinking Water Assessment Trainings
As part of the Community Source Water Protection Initiative, Clean Water Network, Clean Water Fund, and the Campaign for Safe and Affordable Drinking Water will host a series of trainings starting this fall. The trainings will focus on the skills needed to turn source water
assessments - tools that map drinking water source areas and identify current and potential pollution problems - into actions that protect and restore watersheds and aquifers. The trainings will cover regional areas and will target approximately 75-100 community leaders and
activists.

The trainings will provide information on integrating water laws and programs to maximize effectiveness. We will use hands-on exercises and new tools to help jumpstart local efforts to protect and restore drinking water sources. Participants will leave with tools, action plans, and new contacts to help in their work.

Regional trainings will be held in the northeast, mid-Atlantic, southeast (Florida and North Carolina) and the mid-west. To date, two of the meetings are scheduled:

· Mid-Atlantic: Philly area, September 13. Contact Rick Loomis of Clean Water Action/Clean Water Fund in Allentown PA at 610-434-9223.
· New England: Worcester MA, October 17-18. Contact Mike Davis of Clean Water Action/Clean Water Fund in Boston at 617-338-8131.

If you are interested in attending these meetings, contact the individual listed above. Wondering if there will be a meeting near you? Contact Eddie Scher at [email protected] or 202-298-2395.

12) RESOURCE: Save Summer Website
Here is a great new way to help save the Clean Water Act and save the waters we all enjoy every summer.
Earthjustice recently created a Save Summer flash movie available at http://savesummer.org/save_summer.html and launched the SaveSummer.org website http://savesummer.org to highlight how the Bush administration effort to eliminate Clean Water Act protections puts at risk summertime fishing holes and swimming spots across the nation. The website provides information about the proposal, the industries supporting it, and allows visitors to send a message to Congress to voice their opposition to efforts to weaken the Clean Water Act.

If you would like to use these tools in your own campaign, here are two ways you can help:
1. Post a banner on your website linking to the Save Summer Flash Movie or SaveSummer.org by following the directions on Earthjustice's website
(http://www.earthjustice.org/media/save_summer.html)

2. Send all your members, e-activists, friends and others an email (sample message below) telling them about the Save Summer Flash Movie and website and encouraging them to spread the word to their friends and colleagues!

Sample Message:
Here is a great new way to help save the Clean Water Act and save the waters we all enjoy every summer.
Visit http://savesummer.org/save_summer.html for the 40 second Save Summer flash movie to see how some of our favorite summertime fishing and swimming spots are at risk because of a proposal by the Bush administration to eliminate Clean Water Act protections for streams, ponds and wetlands across the nation. (Don't forget to turn on your speakers - there is a soundtrack!)
Without Clean Water Act safeguards, industries could start dumping unlimited amounts of pollution into many of our nation's waters, ruining our summers now and for years to come.
Please visit the site to send a message asking Congress to keep Clean Water Act protections in place and forward this message to your friends!
