Watersheds

Protecting Watersheds is Swag

Watershed:

A watershed is an area that separates waters, taking them to larger bodies of water.

They help filter the water that we drink and use. They also allow the transportation of nutrients to different areas of the world.

Protection:

  • Limit the use of pesticides that can contaminate waters
  • Limit the amount of deforestation, which limits amount of sediment in water
  • Do not allow use of dams, as they interrupt multiple cycles necessary for a healthy watershed
