Nashville Water Quality: Then & Now
Early settlers chose the site for Fort Nashboro because of the abundance of pure water from a local spring. As the city of Nashville grew, residents began pumping water to a reservoir in the public square through hollow locust and cedar logs. But in 1829, a fire destroyed the water distribution system, and Nashville had to rebuild a new infrastructure using cast iron pipes.
In response to several cholera outbreaks in 1878, city engineers installed an island filtering gallery at the mouth of Brown’s Creek. The facility reduced waterborne bacteria by removing mud and other contaminants. To improve Nashville water quality, city officials began adding sulfate of alumina, a chemical that coagulates muddy river water into larger, heavier pieces which settle. The City Reservoir, later renamed the 8th Avenue Reservoir, was completed in 1889 as a settling basin, allowing mud to settle out of the river before distributing the water. The Omohundro Water Treatment Plant was later constructed in 1929 to help further improve Nashville drinking water.
Watch the video below to learn more about Nashville drinking water history in the video below:
Today, Nashville drinking water comes from the Cumberland River before entering one of 2 treatment plants: K.R. Harrington and Omohundro. The treatment plants disinfect water using small amounts of fluoride and bleach. Then Nashville drinking water travels across over 3,000 miles of water pipes before reaching city residents. According to the recent Nashville Water Quality report, water meets EPA regulations. However, like many older American cities, Nashville still has cast iron pipes, which can corrode and contaminate Nashville water with lead and copper, resulting in a cloudy, rusty taste.
