1) ACTION ALERT! Nominate a "Most Endangered River"
American Rivers is calling on river lovers everywhere to nominate rivers for the 2004 America's Most Endangered Rivers report, to be released in April 2004.
The deadline for nomination applications is October 1. Nomination forms are available at: http://www.amrivers.org/mostendangered/nomination04.htm
Each year since 1986, American Rivers has released the America's Most Endangered Rivers report to highlight the rivers facing the gravest threats and approaching the most crucial crossroads. The report has a distinguished track record of combining the power of national and grassroots partners to save rivers through improved public policies. Entire rivers or selected portions - headwaters, tributaries, riparian wetlands, or estuaries - can be nominated. Rivers are selected based on three main criteria:
1) the magnitude and imminence of the threat to the river;
2) the likelihood that major action during the coming year could either intensify or lessen the threat; and,
3) the regional and national significance of the river.
Individuals and organizations considering a nomination are encouraged to read last year's report at: http://www.americanrivers.org/mostendangered/2003report.htm
Nominate a River Today! Nomination forms for the 2004 report can be found at: http://www.amrivers.org/mostendangered/nomination04.htm

2) ACTION ALERT! Take Action To Keep Our Water Clean!
In 1972 Congress passed the Clean Water Act to make the nation's waters safe for fishing and swimming, eliminate harmful discharges of pollution, and protect the nation's wetlands. Now, this landmark law and the waters it protects are under attack. Ask your Members of Congress to tell the Bush administration to reject the attempt by polluting industries to reverse 30 years of progress and instead make sure that the Clean Water Act continues to protect all of our nation's waters.
The EPA is currently reviewing the over 130,000 public comments that were submitted during the agency's public comment period. Now is the time to tell your elected officials you support the Clean Water Act, so send your letter to Congress today! To learn more, visit www.savethecleanwateract.org
3) EVENT: World Water Monitoring Day 2003
America's Clean Water Foundation and the International Water Association are inviting citizens and organizations from around the globe to share in the experience of water quality monitoring on World Water Monitoring Day 2003. World Water Monitoring Day serves as a global educational platform for watershed leaders, educators and trained volunteers to help those who are less experienced better understand how the actions of individuals in a watershed can impact many others.
From September 18 to October 18, citizens throughout the world community will have an opportunity to monitor the quality of their local watersheds and enter the results of their efforts into an international database. Then, on October 18, we will celebrate World Water Monitoring Day together.
Over 75,000 people across the United States took part in National Water Monitoring Day in 2002. They participated in water quality monitoring, educational outreach opportunities and water festivals. Over 5,150 monitoring sites were registered across the country as citizens, volunteer monitors and government officials joined together as they followed through with testing on over 70% of the sites initially registered.
Additional information on this event can be found at http://www.worldwatermonitoringday.org.
Watershed groups may purchase testing kits at great discount by visiting this website.

4) NEWS: Report on NEPA and Public Involvement
A new report released by the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Sierra Club looks into the effect that NEPA, the National Environmental Policy Act, has had on various highway case studies in recent years. "The Road to Better Transportation Projects," looks into 12 projects across the country and generally concludes that, for the specific case studies, public input significantly reduced the amount of environmental damage. The report also finds that public input allowed modifications which enabled the projects to have a better fit in the communities they were directly affecting. Unfortunately, the current administration seeks to use NEPA as a scapegoat for costly delays due to the public involvement and environmental review necessitated by law. However, in a majority of the cases the delay problems were caused by lack of funding, local controversy, and the complex nature of the projects. Although the process is not perfect, it is not a reason to weaken the law. The report recommends a several ways to strengthen the process, including early meetings with stakeholders in order to coordinate much earlier to avoid costly delays.

5) NEWS: Draft Watershed-Based NPDES Permitting Guidance is Available for Comment
The purpose of this draft guidance is to describe EPA's ideas on how watershed-based permitting could be implemented under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program. Using a watershed approach, permit limits for dischargers within a given geographic area (i.e., watershed) would be developed as a group to better consider the unique characteristics of that area. EPA believes this approach would be both more cost-effective for permitting authorities and regulated entities and would result in greater protection of the nation's rivers, lakes, and coastal waters. The draft guidance is available for public comment until Sept. 24, 2003. For more information, please visit www.epa.gov/npdes/watersheds/.

6) NEWS: Office of Water Releases Strategy for Water Quality Standards and Criteria
The Office of Science and Technology has released the Strategy for Water Quality Standards and Criteria: Setting Priorities to Strengthen the Foundation for Protecting and Restoring the Nation's Waters. This document outlines the priority strategic actions that EPA plans to undertake with its partners over the next six years to strengthen the vital foundation for a wide range of programs under the Clean Water Act. The Strategy reflects an extensive review of water-related mandates; the results of over 50 listening sessions with over 350 people, and recommendations from the National research Council, the general Accounting Office, and our Inspector General. For more information, visit the Internet at http://www.epa.gov/waterscience/standards/strategy/.

7) NEWS: EPA Will Help Consumers Locate and Purchase Water-Efficient Products
More than 36 states expect to experience water shortages over the next ten years, even without drought conditions. EPA's Assistant Administrator for Water, G. Tracy Mehan, III, announced that to address this critical issue, the Agency is planning a national program to promote water-efficient products to consumers. Water-efficient products meeting current standards can reduce home water use up to 30 percent and many products on the market today exceed those standards. Water-efficient products for commercial use can save up to 20 percent, and opportunities exist in the industrial sector as well. However, there isn't a national, easy-to-use guide to how consumers can locate and purchase these water-efficient products. EPA is evaluating various public information tools to help raise awareness of the importance of water conservation and the growing demands placed on America's water supplies and water infrastructure systems.

One of the tools under consideration is a water efficient product labeling program that is based on EPA's highly successful ENERGY STAR program, a government-backed program to protect the environment through superior energy efficiency. There is significant support for product labeling from a broad range of stakeholders including water systems, manufacturers, retailers, municipalities, states, water industry organizations and environmental groups.

A national program would seek to increase water efficiency by informing water users of the advantages of water-efficient products, motivating manufacturers to produce more water-efficient products, and encouraging distributors, retailers and local water utilities to promote these products. Efficient water use can have major environmental, public health and economic benefits by helping to improve water quality, maintaining ecosystems and protecting drinking water resources. If wise water use is put into practice it can help to mitigate the effects of drought and save homeowners money on water and energy bills without compromising convenience or performance.

We would like to thank our members that made contributions in response to our latest appeal letter announcing the McKnight challenge grant. Your generosity enables us to advocate with great strength on behalf of our watersheds.

Please consider joining TCWN or increasing you donation above previous gifts, by doing so your dollars will go twice as far. Thank you for your commitment to protect, restore, and enhance Tennessee's waters.

You may mail contributions to TCWN at P.O. Box 1521, Knoxville, TN 37901 or through our website - www.tcwn.org
