Catawba Riverkeeper created interactive, online maps to help you explore the Catawba-Wateree River basin.

Ever wonder “What’s the name of that creek? Where is our drinking water withdrawn? Where are permitted discharges? Who are my state legislators?”

With Catawba Riverkeeper’s Basin Explorer Map you can find out these things and more by turning on/off different map layers! Click on the titles below to get started.

Sponsor a Watershed Map

Did you know that the Catawba-Wateree spans more than 5,000 square miles? Within our basin, there are 164 sub-watersheds. That’s a lot of area to keep our eyes on.

You can help us get the job done by sponsoring a watershed for $250.

Sponsoring a watershed provides the resources that Catawba Riverkeeper needs to monitor our waterways, collect relevant data, and report pollution to the proper authorities.
