Environmental Stewardship Program

Experiencing Flooding, Drainage Problems or Erosion on your residential property?

If you are a resident of Knox County, you may qualify for cost-share assistance from the Knox County Stormwater Department through the Environmental Stewardship Program (ESP).

The Environmental Stewardship Program is a voluntary cost-share program that funds low-impact or “green” technologies that help to improve infiltration, address erosion and reduce stormwater runoff on privately owned properties in Knox County. This program is funded by the Knox County Stormwater Department.
