Do you know what a watershed is? Hear if people around Alexandria, Virginia knew the answer!

Produced by




this taught me a lot about water sheds and that we all live in watersheds and that most people do not know what a watershed is and what watershed they are in and most people like teachers do not know what watersheds are.


Watersheds are streams and flows and some of them are in Alexandria Virginia


One wonders what damage we are causing to our watershed when so few really even understand what it is and it's importance.


The responses to the unexpected question emphasize that many people don't even know that they ALL live in a watershed... and not very many individuals know what watershed they are in. Other issues are more important to them, they think, than this "narrow environmental" issue. But, you can bet that many of these same unknowing individuals will be quick to complain if they suffer losses from tributary flooding!
