stream “The combined surface- and ground-water quality and ecological assessments of the Flint River Basin by the Lower Tennessee River Basin NAWQA Program have heightened our awareness of how vulnerable our water resources are due to karst features of the watershed. These technical, interdisciplinary assessments of watershed conditions have helped focus our watershed restoration efforts within the Flint River Basin.” (Susan Weber, Flint River Conservation Association)
