Cumberland River Compact driving water quality awareness and education

Environmental awareness and education is vitally important to the health of the Cumberland River and area creeks and streams. Nashville is fortunate to have community partners such as the Cumberland River Compact dedicated to improving the watershed.

The Cumberland River Compact, a group of citizens and community leaders, created the Cumberland River Center to lead protection of the river against pollution, drought, storm water runoff and other challenges.

“The Compact’s three primary goals are to teach the importance of water stewardship, to work with volunteers and professionals to complete on-the-ground projects, and to help provide fun recreational opportunities that connect people to rivers and streams,” said Paul Sloan, executive director of the Cumberland River Compact.

“The River Center provides a wonderful site to host meetings, workshops, lectures and exhibits that heighten our understanding of the importance of our water resources.”

Located in the historic Nashville Bridge Company building, more commonly called the NABRICO Building, the center hosts educational workshops to encourage citizens throughout the Cumberland River Basin to support creative solutions that will protect this tremendous community asset. The Cumberland River is the region’s abundant source for drinking water and makes a big contribution to recreation, the economy and quality of life.
