The Town of Farragut is mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation to monitor certain streams (or tributaries to those streams). The goal of this mandate is to protect and rehabilitate our natural water resources. In accordance with this mandate, this right of entry is not for any building or structure on the property, it is specifically for the purpose of inspecting streams (or their tributary watercourses).
Representatives of the Town of Farragut will be collecting samples from streams and/or making visual assessments of these waterways. This process is done annually and effects Turkey Creek, the North Fork of Turkey Creek, Little Turkey Creek and associated tributaries. If you have any questions about this project, feel free to contact the Town at (865) 966-7057.
