    The Nation's rivers and streams are a priceless resource, but pollution from urban and agricultural areas pose a threat to our water quality. To understand the value of water quality, and to more effectively manage and protect the Nation's water resources, it's critical that we know the current status of water-quality conditions, and how and why those conditions have been changing . Drainage basins of the principal oceans and seas of the world. Grey areas are endorheic basins that do not drain to the oceans. Ocean basins. The following is a list of the major ocean basins: About % of the world's land drains to the Atlantic Ocean. [citation needed] In North America, surface water drains to the Atlantic via the Saint Lawrence River and Great Lakes basins, the .

    The Potomac River (/ p ə ˈ t oʊ m ə k / ()) is found within the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States and flows from the Potomac Highlands into the Chesapeake river (main stem and North Branch) is approximately miles ( km) long, with a drainage area of ab square miles (38, km 2). In terms of area, this makes the Potomac River the fourth largest river . Such incursions on the banks of a river can also cause a rapid rise in water volume and a diminution of water quality. The opposite happens where a stream or river runs through a forested area. A number of years ago I was allowed to visit the Asheville watershed surrounding the North Fork of the Swannanoa River.

    In the Clark Fork and Kootenai River Basins, the Task Force was chosen to serve as the advisory council. Appendix A lists Task Force members. The Task Force was created by the Montana Legislature in for the purpose of developing the original Clark Fork River Basin Water Management Plan discharge and improve water quality, and can store water for up to three days. The basin bottom may be planted with native herbaceous perennials and grasses, shrubs, and small trees. The extended storage and vegetation allows time for sediment to settle-out prior to discharge, and reduces stormwater volumes.

The Tennessee portion of the Clear Fork of the Cumberland River Watershed is located in East Tennessee and includes parts of Campbell, Claiborne and Scott counties. It is approximately 2, square miles ( square miles in Tennessee) and drains to the Cumberland River.

A water quality assessment was conducted on three Appalachian streams polluted by coal mining at the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area, Tennessee and Kentucky. Results showed that sulfate was an excellent parameter for detecting the effects of coal mining and that sulfate analyses used in conjunction with conductivity readings provided the best.

The total area of the New River basin in North Carolina is square miles and includes 21 digit HUs falling within a single eight-digit CU (). The New River originates at the confluence of the South and North Fork New rivers along the Ashe-Alleghany county line in extreme northwestern North Carolina.

Ten river basins drain ab square miles in Western North Carolina. The New River, in the northeast corner of the region, is thought to be one of the oldest in the world. The region’s river basins have some of the most outstanding and diverse aquatic systems within the state.

We see water in oceans, seas, lakes, streams, ponds, and rivers. Rivers are the foundations of most human settlements; many communities are situated near river systems or river basins. A river basin is also known as a catchment area, drainage basin, or catchment basin.

It can have smaller sub-basins that combine to form a larger water basin. Use our River Basin App to interact with all 17 river basins in North Carolina.

As river basins close, river basin management has to come to grips.The Merrimack River (or Merrimac River, an occasional earlier spelling) is a mile-long ( km) river in the northeastern United States. It rises at the confluence of the Pemigewasset and Winnipesaukee rivers in Franklin, New Hampshire, flows southward into Massachusetts, and then flows northeast until it empties into the Gulf of Maine at Newburyport.
