Obed Watershed 
For every flowing river in Tennessee, there are many streams that feed it. A group of volunteers on Tennessee’s Cumberland Plateau work to preserve water quality in these tributaries.

Gnats (Black Flies) 
In Tennessee’s warm months, gnats are a nuisance to people and animals. UT researchers are working to reduce the population by eliminating them before they’ve hatched from rivers and streams.
