Where Does Our Stream Water Originate?

As we know, North Willow Glen sits between a creek and a river; the Los Gatos and Guadalupe respectively. This explains why many of us are required to purchase flood insurance. But did you know where all that water comes from? Thanks to a fun and informational tool called Streamer from the Department of the Interior, you can track any major U.S. stream in either direction.

Uvas, Llagas, and Los Gatos Creeks all start out very near one another, but only Los Gatos Creek flows north. Check out Streamer to learn more.
