Meet H2O Joe and his friend Flo! Keep it clean because we're all down stream!

Did you know that you live in a watershed? Yes, that's right. We all live in a watershed. What's a watershed? It's a fancy word describing an area of land that drains or 'sheds' its water to a river or lake from higher to lower elevations.

The area you are in, if you live in Thornton, is part of a watershed and the water is flowing somewhere. Every raindrop or snow flake from a storm falls into a watershed. Where does the stormwater from your yard go? It flows to the nearest lake, river or stream, and eventually to the ocean. Everyone lives in a watershed (except the astronauts in the Space Station)! How about the stormwater from your school, where does it go? Is it in the same watershed as your yard? All of the water in Thornton ultimately ends up in the South Platte River and ultimately in the Gulf of Mexico.
