    Looking at the watersheds in the States it’s mind boggling to consider just how much of the country is down stream, so people’s actions really do count. I can’t imagine the amount of pollution pouring into the Gulf of Mexico…oh, I can now imagine I just saw a video…grim!

    For clarification – is a watershed a named thing? Or more of just a visual concept and understanding of where the water ‘starts’ and ‘ends’ (even though that is arbitrary). Is this accurate? Or possibly I am missing something on the interactive watershed map? I pull up and lock in my location but don’t see any detailed information of the ‘name’ of my watershed. Living on a river, I definitely know where that water comes from and where it feeds into the gulf but curious if there is more detailed info I should be searching for. Thanks!

      [HHA Coach} Hey Todd! A watershed is simply an area of land that drains or “sheds” water into a specific waterbody. Every body of water has a watershed. So you may have an unnamed watershed in your area. You’re on the right track. 🙂

    I’ve lived near one of two rivers, which are connected, my whole life. I knew that we were effected by any rainfall or pollution etc upstream, that we effected everything downstream, & that our rivers feed into some pretty major rivers. However i never really considered how big of an area that affects. Embarass river feeds into the Wabash, then Wabash into the Ohio, & the Ohio into the Mississippi. That means our watershed stretches almost from the great lakes to the gulf of mexico!

    Do you know any link for Europe (Sweden)?

    I got my area up but no water shed showing

    The site would only show me watersheds in USA not Canada even though Canada is on the map
