Watershed Planning Coordination


Tennessee Department of Agriculture  and Department of Environment host planning coordination meetings with partners and agencies engaged in watershed planning in Tennessee. The Watershed Planning Coordination meetings bring together these agencies and partners to a common forum in order to:

  • enable coordination of objectives and priorities,
  • build up planning capacity and resources, and
  • align funding and technical support.

This type of coordination is taking place in the hope that every watershed in Tennessee can have a plan for the protection of water resources, restoration of water quality, and management of activities within  watersheds. 

Welcome to a compilation of watershed plans and spatial resources. The purpose of this map is to assist in comprehensive watershed planning and restoration project coordination in Tennessee.
