Watershed hydrology

February 14, 2023

A healthy watershed will produce streamflow in local rivers that are based on several factors.  The hydrology of a watershed can be assessed by looking at several elements:

Identify the size of the watershed – how to identify the boundaries of a watershed (delineate the size of a watershed using a topographic map)

Identify the typical rainfall amounts at different elevations

How much water evaporation occurs at different locations in the watershed
