The U.S. Population Living in Coastal Watershed Counties

Over 50 percent of the nation's population lives in only less than 20 percent of the U.S. land area (excluding Alaska), which generates a wide range of pressures on sensitive coastal ecosystems. As our nation's coastal watershed county population continues to grow, it is imperative to understand, manage, and protect the bounty and beauty that have drawn so many Americans to our coasts.

    Yes - I can't ear the waves, but the ocean is less than a mile from my home.

    A small river and some private ponds are the largest bodies of water within 25 miles. About 25 miles away is the Ohio river.

    The wildlife preservation is really good here. We did lose some of our coast last year from a hurricane.

    I live in a town called Lakeland. Named because of the number of lakes in the area. Most likely they are all old sink holes. I have a small pond in my back yard. Water fowl abound on a regular basis. Fun to watch. We are waiting to see if the several pairs of ducks make a nest and hatch some young ones.

    I live not far from Lake St. Clair which feeds into the Great Lakes. Most do not realize that the only difference between the Great Lakes and the ocean is salt. Large cargo freighters have perished in storms on these lakes. They can be beautiful but also deadly, just like the ocean. They are also very very large bodies of water. Thanks to Lake Huron we here in Southeast Michigan have wonderful water to drink.

    Well, not exactly large in relative to ocean. But we do have large lakes around here. But, it still is a large body of water :P You didn't specify it being an ocean, great lakes or gulf. Beltzville Lake Mauch Chunk Lake Pocono Lake

    I live within walking distance to a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay, and about 5 miles away from the Bay itself. I love the water....especially the ocean. We have a home on Assawoman Bay in Ocean City, but my dream is to someday have a beach front home. That would be heaven!!!

    About 10 miles from a good sized popular lake. I always thought it would be nice to have a little cabin on the lake, just for in summer.
