About:

THIS SITE HAS BEEN FILLED FOR THE 2017-2018 RECRUITMENT CYCLE.

The Town of Farragut Stormwater Matters water quality program seeks to provide an exceptional level of environmental stewardship to the community through the protection and maintenance of local water resources in accordance with the Town of Farragut Stormwater Ordinance. The Town of Farragut’s Stormwater Matters program conducts education and outreach efforts that emphasize public involvement and take a watershed approach to protecting water quality by reaching across political and geographic jurisdictions working with the City of Knoxville, Knox County and other public and private entities invested in maintaining and protecting water quality in East Tennessee.  This is done through extensive participation in the Water Quality Forum and the Tennessee Stormwater Association.

In addition, Stormwater Matters offers opportunities to volunteer and learn about best stormwater management practices.  The Town of Farragut’s Outdoor Classroom and Water Quality Demonstration Site is an applied learning space where groups can “adopt” a plot and implement a project.  To learn more, visit the Outdoor Classroom page. The team also participates and helps coordinate annual events such as River Rescue, WaterFest and the continual Adopt-A-Stream program.
