What is the Eagle Creek Watershed?

The Eagle Creek Watershed is part of the Upper White River Watershed and drains into Eagle Creek Reservoir, which serves as a public drinking water supply for Indianapolis.  The watershed has a Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC) of 05120201120 and has a drainage area of 162 square miles north of the Eagle Creek Dam located approximately 10 miles northwest of downtown Indianapolis.  The watershed runs through parts of Boone, Hamilton, Hendricks, and Marion Counties.  The dominant land-cover is agriculture with some portions of the watershed, particularly those closest to the reservoir, undergoing increased urbanization.
