City, county joins Cumberland River Compact, Old Hickory Watershed Association in effort

The Cumberland River Compact’s Local Officials Curriculum Program is partnering with local municipalities and watershed groups to actively renew Sinking Creek’s health and make a difference in the Old Hickory Watershed, on Saturday June 13, from 9 a.m. until noon. 

This will be the 3rd annual stream clean-up season for the city. The cleanup staging area will be at the Jimmy Floyd Family Center off Castle Heights Avenue in Lebanon.

A free lunch will be provided by Dewaal and Associates for all volunteers. Dewaal and Associates is a civil-environmental engineering firm located in Lebanon that provides creative and innovative design services to municipal, industrial, commercial and residential clients in the Middle Tennessee area. 

“Protecting the environment with innovative partnerships and projects is a priority for the city,” said James Vaden, Lebanon’s Stormwater coordinator. “We appreciate the efforts of our partners, including Dewaal and Associates, for making these clean-ups a success year after year.”
