Warwick's Watersheds

Which One Do You Call Home?

A watershed is all of the land that catches water and brings it down hill and downstream to a nearby waterbody. Warwick has several small watersheds-some bring water to a pond such as Warwick Pond, some directly to a beach like Oakland Beach, and some to a stream such as Buckeye Brook and the small tributaries that lead into it. Whatever watershed you live in, water from your property will move downhill after a storm and bring pollution with it unless you take simple steps to prevent it.
