We need your help to stop these BAD water bills!

March 13th, 2009 by Dana Wright

We are fighting one of our biggest legislative battles ever in an effort to protect Tennessee’s waters, and we need your help!  Two bills are up for discussion and a potential vote in the Senate Environmental Committe on Tuesday and the sponsor needs to hear from you about why these bills are so bad. 

SB632 and SB633 in short will lift protection from thousands of miles of smaller streams throughout the state.  These bills are an attempt to weaken our state’s water protection laws and are a huge threat to our water quality and quantity. 

Please call Senator Southerland and other members of the Senate Environmental Committee to oppose these dangerous bills.  Go to for each member’s contact information and let them know you oppose SB632 and SB633 because they strip protection away from our waters – could destroy approximately 30,000 miles of streams in Tennessee - and are a critical threat to our neighborhood streams and smaller waterbodies. 

Call these members no later than Monday, and let’s defeat these bills!
