You may know it simply as a small creek running through the backyard. It may not consistently flow with water or even have a name, but headwater streams are where all of our nation’s iconic rivers begin.
A new graphic from the Environmental Protection Agency demonstrates just how reliant many of us are on them for some or all of our drinking water. Across the country, approximately 117 million Americans rely on small headwater streams at least in part for their drinking water supply.
