— A new waterfall in Chattanooga, TN is making headlines.
In April of 2017, a Tennessee Department of Natural Resources employee discovered a giant, white water fountain in a creek bed at Eastwood Springs.
The waterfall was named in honor of Tennessee Governor Nathan Deal and his wife, Mary.
When it was revealed the man was a water conservationist, the water quality officials decided to put the man to work and clean up the creek.
The creekbed was then cleaned out with a hose and water.
It is believed that the water was taken off the waterfall to remove debris from the creek bed.
As the story goes, the man had worked on the creek since it was created.
In August of 2017 the Tennessean reported that a man working on the site was arrested for trespassing.
The Tennesseans story about the water fountain has generated a ton of attention online.
On Facebook, people have been sharing photos and videos of the water source.
One person posted a photo of a man digging out a small creek bed to fill with water from the waterfall.
Some people have commented on the story and said it makes them feel good to have a water source in their community.
“The water was in the creek, so it’s like a fountain,” said a woman who wanted to remain anonymous.
“You have a chance to be a part of something special.”
The Tennessee Department of Conservation says they will continue to clean up any water left over from the water conservation effort.
