River Summary: The Duck River is an approximately 284-mile-long river located in Middle Tennessee. Historically, the river was used by Native American tribes for fishing and transportation. It was also a significant route for early explorers and settlers. The river is known for its diverse aquatic life and serves as a major source of drinking water for nearby cities. The river has several reservoirs and dams, including Normandy Dam and Tims Ford Dam, which provide hydroelectric power and recreational opportunities such as fishing, boating, and swimming. The river also supports agricultural activities, including crop irrigation and livestock watering. However, pollution from agricultural runoff and urbanization has impacted the water quality in recent years. Conservation efforts are being made to protect this valuable resource.
