DRAINAGE AREAS OF THE POTOMAC RIVER BASIN, WEST VIRGINIA By Jeffrey B. Wiley, Michelle L. Hunt, and Donald K. Stewart ABSTRACT This report contains data for drainage-area divisions of the Potomac River Basin, from the headwa-ters to the confluence of the Potomac River and the Shenandoah River. Data, compiled in downstream order,Cited by: 1. 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. Watershed planning focuses on a watershed, a geographic area that is defined by a drainage basin. Often this geographic area is described using hydrologic unit codes (HUC). The study area for this effort is defined as the HUC 4 Monongahela River watershed located in the north central portion of West Virginia, the western tip of Maryland, and.

The Monongahela River (/ m ə ˌ n ɒ ŋ ɡ ə ˈ h iː l ə / mə-NONG-gə-HEE-lə, /-ˈ h eɪ-/-⁠ HAY-) — often referred to locally as the Mon (/ m ɒ n /) — is a mile-long ( km) river on the Allegheny Plateau in north-central West Virginia and southwestern river flows from the confluence of its west and east forks in north-central West Virginia northeasterly Mouth: Ohio River. Lake Monongahela was a proglacial lake in western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and formed during the Pre-Illinoian ice epoch when the retreat of the ice sheet northwards blocked the drainage of these valleys to the north. The lake formed south of the ice front continued to rise until it was able to breach a low divide near New Martinsville, West Virginia. This report contains data for drainage-area divisions of the Potomac River Basin, from the headwaters to the confluence of the Potomac River and the Shenandoah River. 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. The Division wished to document these changes in the West Virginia portion of the Monongahela River and, in cooperation with U. S. EPA, Region III, conducted similar lock chamber studies in September, at the Opekiska Lock and Dam, mile point H and .

The mile Monongahela River rises at the junction of the West Fork River and the Tygart Valley River at Fairmont, WV, and ends at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where it joins the Allegheny River to form the Ohio West Virginia, it travels across central Marion County and eastern Monongalia County on its 37 mile journey to the Pennsylvania border at the Mason-Dixon Line. In this report, the Monongahela River and its drainage area which begins as the source confluences of the West Fork River and the Tygart Valley River join together at the City of Fairmont, West Virginia and where it meets the Stateline near the outlet of Camp Run is referred to as the Monongahela River Watershed. Throughout this report. Monongahela River Basin Originating in north‐central West Virginia, the Mon flows northward through south‐western Pennsylvania to Pittsburgh where it meets the Allegheny River to form the Ohio River. It is kilometers ( miles) long, has a drainage basin of 2, hectares (7, sq. miles) andFile Size: 4MB.
