City of Knoxville
Stormwater Engineering Division
The City of Knoxville currently has five wet-weather monitoring stations located
in five stream watersheds (First, Love, Third, Fourth, & Williams).
Each monitoring station will grab a water sample every 15 minutes
whenever the instruments detect heavier-than-normal flow. A weighted
composite sample is created and then tested for a dozen parameters
as specified in the municipal NPDES permit. The values are then
reported to TDEC - Division of Water Pollution Control as summarized
by the NPDES Annual
Reports that are prepared by the Stormwater Engineering
Love Creek monitoring station, shown to the right, is located near
Holston Drive. Rainfall
data is gathered for the purposes of estimating pollutant
runoff loads, stream flows and to determine limits for wet-weather
monitoring and sampling.
Recent and historical 15 minute data from all monitoring stations
and rain gauges is available for public
access. Data includes; rainfall, creek level and flow. Please,
