Join the Water Quality Forum for the 3rd Annual Cheers to Clean Water Celebration on June 9th, 2019. This is a unique event with support from Knox County Stormwater Management, University of Tennessee Stormwater Dept, and the City of Knoxville Solid Waste Dept. Participants are encouraged to bring a kayak, canoe, or paddle board and take part in a competitive race, or just float and enjoy the Tennessee river. Following the float is a celebration in the name of clean water at Suttree Landing Park, with craft libations, bluegrass music, raffle prizes, and educational activities for adults and kids alike. All proceeds from this event benefit the Water Quality Forum, a nonprofit coalition of diverse partners working together to keep our waters in East Tennessee clean. A portion of the proceeds go directly to WaterFest, the Water Quality Forum’s largest annual education event. Thank you to our sponsors: Erosion Supply, Waste Connections, Fulghum, Macindoe, & Associates Inc., Visit Knoxville, Waste Management, Keep the TN River Beautiful, and the East Tennessee Whitewater Club.
