Red Bank “Stream Team” helps restore watershed

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation is helping students at Red Bank Elementary School learn about their watershed.

The Tennessee Student Environmental Alliance was presented a check for more than seventy eight thousand dollars today.

That will help the Red Bank “Stream Team” restore the Mountain Creek Watershed.

The students are learning to fight stream bank erosion and engineering a solution.

The project also includes installing green infrastructure at a home and church to get the public involved in taking care of the creek.

The ultimate goal of the project is a cleaner Mountain Creek.
