Facts about Watersheds

  • The U.S. Geological Survey measures water resources all across the United States, measuring flow levels, water quality and quantity with various water gauges that are regularly monitored. (https://www2.usgs.gov/water/)
  • Headwaters are organic streams or tributaries of a river close to or a part of its originating sources. Healthy headwaters supply organic matter that contribute to the growth and productivity of organisms such as insects and fish. Headwaters also help to keep sediment and pollutants out of the streams system’s lower branches and enhance biodiversity. (http://www.dep.wv.gov/WWE/getinvolved/sos/Pages/Headwaters.aspx)
