Campbell County Watersheds – December 2017

Campbell County Watersheds

Watersheds are areas of land that drain to a particular stream, river, or lake. They can also be called drainage basins or catchments. Watersheds are separated by ridges and hills that are called divides. A watershed consists of surface water—lakes, streams, reservoirs, and wetlands—and all the underlying ground water.

Campbell County sits within the Ohio River Watershed, which spans 13 states, and covers 203,940 square miles. More than 25 million people live within its drainage area.
