What Is A Watershed
From the mountains to the coast, this series focuses on the water system known as the Connecticut River, one of 10 designated American Heritage Rivers. Filmed in the ecosystem and supported by The Connecticut River Education Initiative. Water. About three feet of it falls as rain and snow in this part of New England every year. In cities and other developed areas, much of it runs off rapidly, down into catch basins and storm drains, where it races through pipes and discharges into our rivers. I
