Our Mission To enhance the health and enjoyment of the Cumberland River and its tributaries through education, collaboration, and action.
Since 1997, the Cumberland River Compact and its members have worked to improve the quality of water in the Cumberland River Basin, and in doing so, to improve the quality of life of our basin’s communities. There’s still much to be done, and we intend to do it!
We believe that water quality and a healthy environment are fundamental to sustainable, strong local economies. Since our founding, we’ve worked cooperatively with local, state and federal agencies, farmers, businesses, technical professionals, local o cials, neighborhood groups, and other watershed stakeholders who share this belief. All to ensure clean and abundant water resources that support, life, recreation, and economic well-being throughout the Basin.
