Take a moment to enjoy the great outdoors before June is over. Visit your favorite inlet on the Harpeth River and dip your feet in for a respite from the summer heat. Don’t forget to leave the area cleaner than you found it and Keep Williamson Beautiful.
The Harpeth River begins in western Rutherford County and runs through Williamson providing much needed irrigation to the fertile lands we call home. It is the source of our drinking water and waste water disposal. In the 1950’s and 1960’s it was heavily contaminated by a lead smelting plant near the Kirkland community.
The west Harpeth flows into much of Southern Williamson County and near the original Natchez Trace road. The river is seeded each year by the TWRA with trout, and the Harpeth River Dam Project is the latest in attempts to return the river to its natural state. Make sure you do your part to enjoy and maintain this beautiful waterway.
