The Cumberland River is one of Nashville’s greatest assets, an abundant source of drinking water and recreation, and a major contributor to our community’s quality of life.

The Clean Water Nashville Overflow Abatement Program is an initiative led by Metro Water Services in coordination with partner agencies including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) for the purpose of meeting the Clean Water Act requirements and, in the process, ensuring the environmental health of the Cumberland River for future generations.
