What is a Watershed?
A watershed (also called a drainage basin or a catchment) is defined as an area of land that intercepts and drains precipitation through a particular river system or group of river systems. In other words it is a region of interconnected rivers and streams which functions as a unified system for water transport.
Six primary watershed regions of SEA: Boughton, Cardigan, Brudenell/Georgetown, Montague-Valleyfield, Sturgeon and Murray River/Harbour.
