Watershed, Water Quality in a A watershed is the connected series of rivulets, streams, rivers, and lakes that collects and directs water from a given area of land into a single watercourse.

Water quality refers to the chemical, physical, biological, and radiological characteristics of water. It is a measure of the condition of water relative to the requirements of one or more biotic species and or to any human need or purpose.

It is most frequently used by reference to a set of standards against which compliance, generally achieved through treatment of the water, can be assessed.
