Urban Water Stewardship

What is Urban Stream Syndrome?

Urban Stream Syndrome is defined by the EPA as the “consistently observed ecological degradation of streams draining urban land.” Many urban streams in the Cumberland River basin are impacted by urban land use; the Cumberland River Compact partners with cities to come up with green solutions to stormwater pollution.
