When rain falls on our land, it eventually flows downhill into a stream or river. Because the rainwater flows over and through this land, the way the land is being used in our watershed can impact the health of our water. Throughout the Cumberland River Basin, we can explore how land use impacts the health of our waterways and compare across regions using the tool iCreek.
