Clean Water Protection

Harpeth Conservancy believes that to realize our vision of clean water and healthy ecosystems for rivers in Tennessee championed by the people who live here, we must be actively engaged in helping to shape water policy.

What we do

Harpeth Conservancy is at the helm of statewide clean water policy. Four of our staff members serve in leadership positions related to policy and advocacy. Grace Stranch, Vice President & COO of Conservation and Policy, sits on the Mayor’s Sustainability Advisory Committee and the Mayor’s Special Solid Waste and Recycling Commission, both for Metro Nashville. Dr. Ryan Jackwood, Watershed Science and Restoration Program Director, sits on the Tennessee Stormwater Association board. Jim Redwine, Senior Policy Advisor, was appointed by Governor Haslam as a representative of Environmental Interests for the Water and Wastewater Financing Board. Dorie Bolze, President & CEO, has led stormwater management work for 20 years and is the past Chair of the Williamson County Stormwater Appeals board.
