TSRA Letter to Governor Haslam on Coal Primacy Bill

We, the undersigned organizations representing hundreds of thousands of Tennesseans, write to strongly encourage you to veto SB686/HB571, the “Primacy and Reclamation Act of Tennessee.” This legislation weakens oversight of coal mining in our state and threatens the health and safety of our communities, water resources, and the environment.

Duck River Safety in the News


Paddling Safety on the Duck River After news of the tragedies and near misses on the Duck River in 2017, including six rescue calls within one week in May, TSRA is thrilled to see some positive news stories about paddling the Duck. The Shelbyville Times-Gazette and WSMV TV Nashville (Channel 4) highlighted TSRA's &  Hook 1 Outfitters' April 21 water safety class in Shelbyville and the importance of water safety in recent stories. With warmer weather and higher water levels upon us, now is the time to share the message of safe and fun water recreation.

Victory for Tennessee Clean Water in Coal Ash Lawsuit

TVA Gallatin Fossil Plant
Today, a federal court in Nashville ruled against the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) in a lawsuit over groundwater contamination from coal ash pits at TVA’s Gallatin Fossil Plant. U.S. District Judge Waverly Crenshaw ordered TVA to excavate and relocate coal ash from a leaking, unlined pit to a dry, lined location. TSRA and the Tennessee Clean Water Network filed the complaint against the TVA in April 2015, alleging that the Gallatin coal ash pits leaked into groundwater and the Cumberland River, violating the Clean Water Act.

Demand continues for recreational water safety courses

On News 4, we've shown the dangers of kayakers getting out on the water with little to no experience.  Now, more people are signing up for classes.  The Tennessee Scenic Rivers Association is hosting recreational river rescue classes. Right now, they are trying to keep up with demand.  These classes teach kayakers how to get back into their boats if they get knocked out. They also look at the various risks and rescue scenarios that can take place out on the water.

Dedication of Big Swan Headwaters Preserve

Big Swan Headwaters Preserve
The Tennessee Scenic Rivers Association (TSRA) congratulates the Swan Conservation Trust (SCT) on the July 8, 2017 dedication of a conservation easement on more than 1,300 acres of forested land known as the Big Swan Headwaters Preserve, adjacent to the “The Farm” in Lewis County. TSRA has contributed over $30,000 to SCT’s conservation efforts, and most recently helped SCT retire the debt on the Baggs Tract land purchase. The conservation easement, a legal tool that restricts development and timbering and will be upheld by the Tennessee Parks and Greenways Foundation (TennGreen), will forever conserve the forests, streams and seeps throughout the property.

Access Build Completed on Big South Fork River

Big South Fork River Access Build
TSRA completed another successful access build on July 8, 2017, its first on National Park Service (NPS) land, at the Station Camp access point on the Big South Fork River. A special thanks goes to all our dedicated volunteers from TSRA and the state and national park services, including Clyde and Christine Gensert who hosted and planned the build, NPS Park Superintendent Niki Nicholas and park personnel who assisted, John Schneider who organized volunteers and Woody Woodall who acted as straw boss.

TSRA/TWRA on Boater Safety on WSMV NBC

Boating safety advocates warn about dangerous weekend on the water

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Already this year, three people have died while kayaking on middle Tennessee's waterways. Water rescue teams are seeing an increase in calls, and are having to respond to inexperienced kayakers who find themselves in trouble. If you combine inexperienced kayakers, with people boating under the influence, we have the recipe for a dangerous weekend out on the water. Many of these incidents can easily be avoided. “You get folks out on the water who just have no idea what the hazards are,” says Andrea White, with the Tennessee Scenic Rivers Association.

Daily News Journal/Tennessean: Boaters at the Mercy of Mother Nature

Weekend water enthusiast David Criswell decided he'd try his hand at paddling the West Fork of the Stones River one late April day after spring rains pushed it to flood stage. The new terrain looked like too much fun to ignore. The fun soon turned to fear. 

As the rec boater population continues to grow, the Tennessee Scenic Rivers Association board realized a need for more intensified instruction for beginners. White and Ryan will both be among several instructors teaching this summer around the state.

"Paddling is a wonderful pastime and recreation. It's relaxing when you want it to be relaxing and exciting when you want excitement. You're in nature and on water and it's beautiful," Ryan said. "We just want to educate people .. so they are aware of hazards and can have fun."
