2018 TRBN Awards
Multiple partners are working together to host and facilitate the 4th annual “Tennessee River Basin Network” meeting in August 2018. Our focus is on bringing peer agencies and nonprofit organizations together to protect and improve aquatic biodiversity in the Tennessee River Basin by identifying and leveraging opportunities for collaboration and sharing resources.

2018 Meeting Highlights
Removal of Two Dams in the Wetmore Run Watershed, Potter County, PA
This project will remove the only two dams in the Wetmore Run Watershed in Potter County, Pennsylvania opening 8.5 miles of habitat for brook trout. Removal of the dams will also eliminate thermal pollution and restore lotic ecosystem function. (Photo: Looking upstream at the dam on Wetmore Run. No water is going over the spillway.)
