Are you AWARE?

Do you know your watershed address?

As children our street address is forever engrained in our minds and we still remember it when we move away from home.  We grow up writing our address on EVERYTHNG- envelopes, school forms, job applications, medical forms, bills, etc.  But there is a little known secondary address most people do not know and that is their watershed address. Click here to find out what your watershed address is.

A watershed is an area of land that drains all the water to one common body of water such as a stream, river, lake, or ocean. Watersheds are defined by topography, or the lands' hills and ridges.

No matter where you are, you are in a watershed!

The Delaware Nature Society surveyed walkers on the Christina Riverwalk about their knowledge of a watershed in the video,  Does your water shed?.
