A surface of ground on which water may be caught and collected into a reservoir.
a) A catching or collecting of water, especially rainwater. b) A structure, such as a basin or reservoir, used for collecting or draining water. c) The amount of water collected in such structure. d) A catchment area.
The land area which drains into a particular watercourse (river, stream or creek) and is a natural topographic division of the landscape. Underlying geological formations may alter the perceived catchment area suggested solely by topography (limestone caves are an example of this).
The whole area that drains into a river. It includes drainage channels, tributaries, floodplains.
The area of land drained by a creek or river system, or a place set aside for collecting water which runs off the surface of the land. Catchments provide the source of water for the reservoirs that collect our drinking water. Most of Melbourne's catchments are "protected": that is, they are fenced to keep out people and domestic animals and minimise the potential of pollution.
A geographical area draining to a sewer or receiving water.
Land area from which water drains toward a common watercourse in a natural basin.
The area of land that contributes surface water to the river.
An area of land surrounding a dam or water storage. Rain falling over the catchment drains to the dam and may contain nutrients, minerals and other contaminants collected from the land surfaces.
The area immediately surrounding a dam or stored water supply which is closed to access to protect water quality.
Areas surrounding the inner catchment where human activity is permitted but may be restricted to protect water quality.
Land and water confined within a single drainage basin.
the area of land which drains into a watercourse.
the drainage basin of a water body that captures all precipitation that falls on it.
is that area within which rainfall will contribute to runoff at a particular point. The area included in catchment is determined by topographic features which on many buildings sites can range from a few square metres to several thousand square metres.
The area from which rainfall is directed to one river.
An area of land bounded by natural features such as hills, from which rain falls and flows to a common point, usually ending in a river or creek and eventually the sea
The area of land that collects rain which then flows into a waterway.
Something that catches water.
Area of ground which collects and feeds water to a given waterway or wetland.
a structure in which water is collected
an area of land that collects water
an area supplying surface water to a common watercourse
an area that collects and directs water to a common point
an area where water is collected by the natural landscape
a natural drainage area, bounded by sloping ground, hills or mountains, from which water flows to a low point
a term which describes the area of land which contributesrunoff to a particular creek, river, lake or the ocean
The boundary of a river basin defined naturally by the watershed line along the tops of the ridges which separate it from a neighbouring valley; the area within this line is the catchment area, from which precipitation drains to collect in streams, rivers, lakes or reservoirs.
area that collects and contributes rainwater to a body of water
having to do with collecting water; basin or reservoir used for collecting or draining water
something that catches rainfall.
the land which drains, whether naturally or artificially, to any point on a stream or river.
An area of land where run-off from rainfall goes into one river system.
The area from which customers are drawn for any particular service or facility.
That area of land from which runoff or direct discharges may affect water-quality at a recreational water site.
The area of land from which rain flows to a waterbody.
A land area determined by topographic features within which rainfall provides runoff to streams.
an area of land defined by ridges and hills in which all water flows to a common point.
The land area from which a river or reservoir is fed, also known as a drainage basin or watershed.
The area of land which collects and transfers rainwater into a waterway.
Area of land from which all surface water drains to a common destination, such as a lake of a river.
The area which supplies water by surface and subsurface flow from precipitation to a given point in the drainage system.
(1) The catching or collecting of water, especially rainfall. (2) A reservoir or other basin for catching water. (3) The water thus caught.
the physical or surface area from which rainfall flows into a river, lake or reservoir
all the land are from mountaintop to seashore which is drained by a single river and its tributaries.
An area of land from which any rainfall will drain into the water course or watercourses and flow to a common point, has definable physical boundaries.
Area The area from which a school traditionally draws the majority of its pupils. Under the terms of the 1980 Education Act parents may express a preference for any school, including a school that does not normally serve their area.
The area from which a river, stream, lake or other body of water receives its water.
The area of land drained by a river and its tributary streams. Sometimes referred to as the 'drainage basin'.
The land area drained by a river and its tributaries
A surface from which runoff is collected. Examples include roofs, paved surfaces, or constructed surfaces covered with plastic.
The area from which water runs off to a river
An area bounded by physical constraints that drains water to a common point.
The area drained by a stream, lake or other body of water. Frequently used to refer to areas which feed into dams. May also refer to areas served by a sewerage or stormwater system.
The area from where the majority of a shop's customers are located
The geographical area which catches and drains water to a given point or points.
A protected area in which water is harvested for use
The area of land drained by a creek or river system, or a place set aside for collecting water which runs off the surface of the land. Catchments provide the source of water for the dams and reservoirs in which our drinking water is collected.
the surrounding region of land from which rain drains into a main waterway.
area having a common outlet for its surface runoff
the area determined by topographic features within which rainfall will contribute to runoff at a particular point under consideration
The area served by a particular centralised service or function, such as a hospital.
The entire land area from which water (eg rainfall) drains to a specific watercourse or waterbody
total area drained by a river or stream; formerly "watershed".
The natural boundary of the area where all surface water drains to a common point. Ridges form the boundaries of catchments. Forest Management
The smallest watershed area, usually defined as the area that drains an individual site, such as a school or small neighborhood, to its first intersection with a stream.
Area of land that collects rain water into a river or stream, which then carries the water to a lake or the sea.
The geographical area from which a retail destination draws its trade. Sometimes measured in terms of 'Drive Time'.
refers to an area (usually smaller than a watershed) which "catches" rainfall and is drained by a common stream.
The area of land from which rainwater or snow melt drains into a reservoir, pond, lake, river or stream.
The area of land determined by topographic features (e.g. hills, valleys and plains) within which rainfall will contribute to stormwater runoff at a particular point.
The area that drains surface runoff from precipitation into a stream, river and/or tributaries or urban stormwater drainage system.
Describes the area of land which contributes runoff to a particular creek, river lake or ocean.
The hospitals that provide emergency psychiatric service to Monroe County are assigned geographic areas from which they must automatically receive psychiatric patients on an emergency basis. These four areas are called "Catchment Areas" and are assigned the letters A through D.
