Watersheds

A watershed is the area of land where all of the water that drains off of it goes into the same body of water. All of Oregon is divided into watersheds according to designated drainage basins. These watersheds include streams, rivers, lakes, and groundwater in the same geographical region. The North Coast Watershed Association works with four watersheds: Nicoali-Wickiup, Youngs Bay, Skipanon and Ecola.
