Union Watershed Boundary

20170129 Hamilton School UnionDid you know that a rain drop landing near Hamilton School on Burnet Road in Union has two routes to get the Atlantic Ocean?

This location in Union sits on a watershed boundary. That means that the rain drop might run off towards the west side of the road, in which case it will go through the Union Larchmont area, find its way to the Rahway River, and flow to the ocean. If the rain drop runs off towards the east side of the road, it will go past Union High School, past the World’s Tallest Water Sphere, find its way to the Elizabeth River, and flow to the ocean.

See for yourself on Google maps.
