Restore Richland Creek Initiative

The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation has listed Richland Creek as polluted. The headwaters, or the very beginning of Richland Creek, belong to Forest Hills.

The City is working with the Cumberland River Compact and TDEC to find solutions to the polluted waters of our creek. Our goal as a City is to have certified unpolluted waters in Richland Creek by winter 2018.
