Things to do coming up:

SAY "NO" TO UNNATURAL FISH ATTRACTORS. THEY NEVER GO AWAY AND ARE NOT MAINTAINED. ALSO IT IS PROVEN THAT NATURAL ATTRACTORS WORK BETTER. 

 

Somebody reported a milky discharge in Richland Creek to TDEC, a week later Reostone was still discharging into the creek. Go here for more info >>> http://www.wsmv.com/video/20685107/index.html. A full report should be demanded by the public. Surely the company knew what was going on??? They save a lot of money by not fixing the problem, cause guess what??? If they shut off the discharge to fix the problem it would back up and cause them to shut down and they would loose money. So the environment suffers. Common problem all the way up and down the river. Just so happens somebody saw this. Most of the discharges are injected underwater and chemical put into the discharge to cover up the discoloration.

Demolition of historic sites.

Here are some of the historic sites we have lost in and around Nashville Tn. because of inaction, or serious inaction and who was responsible: L&N Train Shed/Metro Nashville Historical, The Jacksonion/  Apartments/Walgreens, Newsom Station Rock Quarry/ Beazer Homes, Fox Ridge Homes, The Craighead House/ Home Depot, Indian Burial Ground at Charlotte Pike/ Walmart Lowes, Indian Burial Ground/ Brentwoood Library,

 

 

 

The most pressing issue as of April 2008 is the endangerment and extinction of the Nashville Crayfish.

1. Donate to this organization for the cause. 100% of donations go for research and litigation for the crayfish..

 

To keep from having to do something with all the consumer waste, try doing some of the following:

1. Keep from buying it in the first place, or buy it in the raw, in other words with no packaging.

2. If you purchase anything make sure it can be recycled and recycle it.

3. To keep from having to recycle buy products that can be composted. Plastic like products are now being made from corn, potatoes and sugar cane.
