The Water Quality Forum is a coalition of diverse partners including municipalities, utilities, non-profit organizations and businesses working together to keep our waters in East Tennessee clean.
The Water Quality Forum aims to provide resources for those interested in learning more about improving our water quality in the greater Knoxville area through education, volunteer opportunities and events.
The next Quarterly Meeting is on June 26th at 4pm at Ijams Nature Center!

The newest component of the Water Quality Forum’s Environmental Stewardship Program (ESP) is Public Property Grants up to $1,500 for projects to be done on public property (e.g. schools, libraries, town halls) Funding is available for rain gardens, grass swales, riparian enhancements, streambank restoration and other best management practices that have a demonstrated benefit to water quality.
