We have created several brochures for public outreach and awareness. These publications were created and develped by Middle Tennessee State University's WaterWorks program and funded in part, under an agreement with the Tennesssee Department of Agriculture, Nonpoint Source Program, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Use of WaterWorks brochures, as originally developed, is granted for non-profit use and to encourage general awareness among the public. However materials must be used as originally developed unless specific approval is granted. Since these were funded by grants, the publications cannot be used,  revised or modified without approval from MTSU WaterWorks. Please contact us directly if you have questions.

Who Trashed the Tennessee?

Concept: Through an interactive story, students learn how, as human populations have increased and land uses have changed, many of our rivers have become polluted. This example demonstrates that, just as we each contribute to the problem, we must also be part of the solution.
