Tools for learning MORE about Watersheds

In our last post we learned we all live in a watershed – even if we live in a desert! In this post a list of websites will be listed that have helping learning tools/resources on watersheds.


https://www.epa.gov/laws-regulations/summary-clean-water-act this link will provide useful information on The Clean Water Act of 1972. The basic structure of regulating discharges of pollutants into water in the United States is defined in the Clean Water Act.


https://www.epa.gov/watershedacademy This is another link to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and it offers free training on watershed courses. Valuable information.


https://www.usgs.gov/science/science-explorer/Water This link is provided by the United States Geologic Services and has a great deal of information on water.


https://river-runner.samlearner.com/?fbclid=IwAR2J-PGUw5crYNIZEcD8hoY1vd2sShwEpGI3tIFxnTuSbgkzL3fFXeBHQIo This is a really fun link! You can enter or zoom in to find a particular place in the United States. Once you click the place – it will show you how a rain drop travels through the watershed and where it ends up!! This is a great visual learning tool!
