The Tenn-Tom, opened to navigation traffic in 1985, was designed and constructed to promote environmentally sustainable development. During the past ten years, the original measures have matured and additional environmental features have been incorporated into the project. This paper describes the environmental mitigation and restoration measures used on the waterway and assesses the success achieved.
