West Virginia has 32 watersheds divided according to the USGS hydrologic unit codes (HUC) that contribute to the Chesapeake Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The waters west of the eastern continental divide flow into the Ohio River.

The Ohio joins the Mississippi River at Cairo, IL. The Mississippi flows into the Gulf of Mexico at New Orleans, LA. Ohio River Tributary Watersheds: North. The Ohio River tributaries (north) watershed is located in northeastern Ohio.

It drains a total of square miles and flows through all or part of five counties. Major municipalities partially or fully in the watershed include Calcutta, Salem and Columbiana. watershed and Middle Ohio River North watershed refer to the tributary streams that eventually drain to the Ohio River south and north of the confluence of the Little Kanawha River (Figure I- 1).File Size: 3MB.

Data, compiled in downstream order, are listed for streams with a drainage area of approximately 2 square miles or larger within West Virginia and for U.S.

Geological Survey streamflow-gaging stations. As was mentioned previously, classic West Virginia muskie rivers and streams have a slow rate of descent, which provides plenty of slow moving pools and holes.

Such streams are also much warmer than trout water cascading down a mountain drainage. So, expect to find river muskies in and around the deeper, larger pools. The Old Kentucky River system was a major contributor to the Teays River, draining southwestern Ohio and much of eastern Kentucky.

The trunk river flowed northward from southeastern Kentucky throughout Frankfort and Carrollton, and then past Cincinnati and Dayton.

The treatment plant also discharges its treated effluent to the Ohio River.

(USGS). A drainage basin or catchment basin is an extent or an area of land where surface water from rain, melting snow, or ice converges to a single point at a lower elevation, usually the exit of the basin, where the waters join another waterbody, such as a river, lake, reservoir, estuary, wetland, sea, or example, a tributary stream of a brook that joins a small river is tributary of a.
