A watershed is an area of land that feeds all the water running under it and draining off of it into a body of water (creek, stream, river or lake).

Whatever we do in our watershed, whether it’s good or bad, affects our neighbors further downstream. The Chagrin River watershed is part of the Lake Erie watershed. Many residents in our region use Lake Erie as their drinking water supply. We need to keep our watershed healthy and productive, because it keeps us healthy and productive!
