A watershed is an area of land that drains to a stream, creek, river, lake or estuary. Every piece of land in Harford County ultimately drains into the Chesapeake Bay, but can travel through many different streams before reaching the Bay.

This is why it is important to be mindful of our actions; pollution anywhere within the watershed has the potential to affect all waterbodies downstream.
