Watershed

Watersheds may be defined as land areas that create a basin which drains into a larger body of water such as a river, lake, stream, or bay.

It is separated from other systems by hills and slopes and includes the entire land area that drains into it. Antigua‘s drainage areas were consolidated into 13 watersheds.

Of the 13 watersheds, there are 6 major watersheds on the island that offer soci-economic, agro-ecological and hydrological values.
