About Watersheds

 

watershedWhat is a Watershed?

“the area that drains to a common waterway, such as a stream, lake, estuary, wetland, aquifer, or even the ocean.”

“that area of land, a bounded hydrologic system, within which all living things are inextricably linked by their common water course and where, as humans settled, simple logic demanded that they become part of a community.”
-John Wesley Powell
