What Is A Watershed?
A watershed is an area of land that drains all the streams and rainfall to a common outlet such as the outflow of a reservoir, mouth of a bay, or any point along a stream channel. The word watershed is sometimes used interchangeably with drainage basin or catchment. In our case, it is the Puget Sound.
A storymap is an interactive map that as you navigate the watershed tells the story of that watershed. This can include its history, areas impacted by pollutants, how it is influenced by development, and much more.
