What’s a Watershed?

A watershed is an area of land that water flows across as it moves toward a common body of water, such as a stream, river, lake or coast. This 270,000-acre watershed drains to the Alafia River and eventually to Tampa Bay.

Land and Water

The land and water share an intimate connection — as water drains to lower terrain it carries pollutants and contaminants with it. This means our activities within the watershed eventually impact the river.
