History of Waterways Wisconsin is home to many large bodies of water. It borders two great lakes: Lake Superior and Lake Michigan. The western border is made up of both the St. Croix River and the Mississippi River. The treasured Wisconsin River runs through the state, and according to Sweeny-Justice (n.d.) the land has 15,074 lakes (only 40% are large enough to name). The upper Wisconsin River was dammed around 20,000 years ago when the western part of the Green Bay Lobe advanced into the Baraboo Hills (which was discussed earlier in reference to Devil’s Lake State Park).
The State of Georgia’s largest lake, Lake Lanier extends for some 38,000 miles, with roughly 700 miles of breathtaking shoreline. It is situated within the rolling, grassy foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is just 60 miles from the city of Atlanta. Shared by the three neighboring states of Alabama, Florida and Georgia, Lake Lanier’s shoreline borders five counties: Hall, Forsyth, Dawson, Gwinnett and Lumpkin. The construction of Lake Lanier was completed in 1957, with the creation of Buford Dam by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on the south end of the lake. The lake is fed by the waters of the Chestatee River, and the Chattahoochee River, upon which the dam was built.
My hometown parish is called Washington parish, I found that my parish falls under Pleistocene terraces for its major landform with a little bit of Holocene alluvium. The elevation of Washington parish is 73 meters or 240 feet. It is identified with Upland terrace as its aquifer system, its well number is, Wa-13. The depth of its well is 156 feet and it was drilled in 1942. Washington parish has three rivers that run throughout it.

Besides the ever changing land formation, the area itself is constantly dry (9). The highest temperatures are during the summer months, particularly July, when temperatures can spike to 121 degrees Fahrenheit (9). The lowest temperatures are in January, when it can dip down all the way to 24
The major rivers are Chattahoochee river and the Savannah river also the Suwannee river. The major lakes are Clarks Hill lake, West Point lake, and lake Hartwell. Georgia can be divided into seven main land regions; the Appalachian Plateau, the Appalachian Ridge and Valley Region, the Blue Ridge, the Piedmont, the Atlantic Coastal Plain, and the East Gulf Coastal Plain. A small section of the Blue Ridge is found in northeastern Georgia north of the Piedmont. Part of the Okefenokee Swamp lies in the East Gulf Coastal Plain.
The rivers and streams of the Kenai River inhabit all five species of salmon found in Alaska, contains millions of fish and spawns the largest amount of Chinook salmon worldwide. The southeast border has thousands of short, productive coastal rivers. Bristol Bay, a land of lakes and coastal rivers, support the majority of Alaska’s sockeye population. The Alsek, Taku and Stinkine Rivers are the three great salmon producing rivers of the southeast; these rivers, along with the Yukon, are transboundary rivers for the salmon ahrvest of Canada and Alaska. The Susitna River watershed drainage is home to many important salmon populations.
It has the largest and tallest tree in the world, a 379-foot redwood. A single redwood can hold 34,000 pounds of water by itself. The oldest redwood is about 2,520 years old. That means it was around at the birth of the Roman Republic and was already 500 years old when Rome became an empire. Redwood National Park is a refuge for plants and animals.
