Nashville Water Quality: Then & Now
The first settlers of Nashville chose the site for Fort Nashboro because of the abundant availability of pure water from a local spring. As the city grew, water was pumped to a reservoir in the public square through hollowed locust and cedar logs, but in 1829 a fire destroyed the water distribution system. The infrastructure was rebuilt using cast iron pipes and satisfied the area’s needs until the rapid population growth during the Civil War created much more demand for drinking water. In response to several cholera outbreaks in 1878, city engineers installed a island filtering gallery at the mouth of Brown’s Creek to reduce the amount of waterborne bacteria in the drinking water by physically removing the mud and other contaminants in the water.
The City Reservoir, later known as the 8th Avenue Reservoir, was constructed as a settling basin, allowing mud to settle out of the river before distributing the water. To improve the color and taste of the drinking water, Nashville city officials started to add sulphate of alumina to help the naturally muddy river water to coagulate the smaller particles into larger, heavier pieces that would settle at the bottom of the reservoir. The Omohundro Water Treatment Plant was constructed in 1929 to help combat the water quality issues from using a settling basin.

Both the 8th Avenue Reservoir and Omohundro Water Treatment Plant, which are listed on the National Registry of Historic Places and are still in use today! Like many older American cities, Nashville still has cast iron pipes in use. Cast iron pipes, particularly older cast iron pipes, are susceptible to corrosion and biofilm contamination from chemical reactions. These reactions can create clusters of deterioration and bacteria that can break off and travel with the drinking water, resulting in cloudy, off-tasting water.
