Phase Three underway!

Thanks to the assistance of citizens who participated in earlier phases, the Blount County Soil Conservation District was awarded a Targeted Watershed grant from the US EPA in the Spring of 2006.

The current phase will call on stakeholders of the Little River Watershed to develop strategies to address the recommendations generated from the earlier forums as part of an Advisory Committee.

To join the Advisory Committe, or to nominate someone who you think would be an ideal member, please email Eric Ogle at

The Little River Watershed is a place for fun and outdoor recreation, provides a home for native plants and animals, and is one of the fastest growing areas in Tennessee.

The Little River is one of East Tennessee's most important natural resources, and it is the main source of Blount County's drinking water.

For these and many other reasons, it is important that everyone living, working, or playing in the Little River Watershed continue to work together now to preserve this important local resource for future generations.

As a resident of the watershed, you are encouraged to take part in this effort and learn how you can help develop strategies to best utilize and sustain the Little River Watershed and its resources.

Please feel free to browse the website for more information, and view this Little River, Big Future Presentation, which explains the history and goals of the program.
