Effects of Pollution

Listed below are some of the major impacts of stormwater pollution.

The Plan requires several new Ordinances to prevent silt and trash in water runoff from construction activities. An important part of the Plan is to inform and educate the citizens as to how they can help keep the water clean by not putting trash in the ditches, using fertilizer wisely, and preventing litter.

About The City of Chickamauga

The Battle of Chickamauga

The Battle of Chickamauga, named after the Chickamauga Creek which flowed nearby, was fought September 19-20, 1863 and involved more than 110,000 soldiers of the Northern and Southern Armies.

Union General William Rosecrans had his headquarters at the Gordon Lee Mansion prior to the battle. The Mansion, completed in 1847, is still standing today. Many parched and wounded soldiers from both sides drank from the town's bubbling Crawfish Spring, which is still active today.
