Note to Reviewers of the Draft 2020 List of Impaired and Threatened Waters in Tennessee:

The Department of Environment and Conservation made the draft 2020 List of Impaired Waters available for public review on November 15, 2019. On November 18, it was discovered that our retrieval from EPA’s ATTAINS database failed to capture two waterbodies that should have been included: Segment TN03150101021_0700 in the Conasauga River watershed and Segment TN05130203003_2000 in the Stones River Watershed. The Workbook has been revised to include these segments.

Reviewers should be aware that this revision does not represent a change in water quality assessment. The two waterbodies in question were already assessed as appropriate for Listing in the ATTAINS database, which is the official federal repository of water quality assessment information. TDEC regrets any inconvenience this revision might have caused.

Questions about the List should be directed to Gregory.Denton@tn.gov .
