A watershed is an area where all water drains into the same surface source, based on topography -- the physical features of an area. In our case, it's the Kalamazoo River. The Kalamazoo River Watershed covers an area of 2,020 square miles, with many tributaries draining into the Kalamazoo River from over land, or from the ground.
