|Teachers Guide to the Howell County Watershed Map|
Howell County lies inside three major watersheds: the Eleven Point, the North Fork, and the Upper Spring. Also, part of the northern area of the county, around Mountain View, is in the Jacks Fork watershed.
Within these watersheds are many smaller rivers and creeks, which form their own sub-watersheds, as shown on the Howell County Watersheds Map.
Which Howell County schools are in the Eleven Point watershed? (Willow Springs; Junction Hill is on the dividing ridge line).
All other Howell County schools are in sub-watersheds of different tributaries of the Upper Spring River (either Howell Creek, South Fork, Warm Fork or Myatt Creek), except for the schools around Mountain View.

The following maps give an overview of how watersheds lie within other watersheds. They are part of the What Is a Watershed? article. The maps are in printable format, and can be printed as overheads:
The Mississippi River Basin. This map of the Mississippi River Basin is divided into the major river basins. Look at southern Missouri. The dividing line between the Missouri River Basin (fuschia) and the Arkansas/ White/Red River Basin (bright purple) is the Ozark Divide. Highway 60 between Mountain Grove and Seymour follows this high ridge.
The White River on the Water Resource Regions of the United States map. Trace the path of the White River from its beginnings in southwestern Arkansas, up into southern Missouri and back down into Arkansas.
The watersheds of the White River Basin. Watersheds overlap state lines. On this map you can see how dams have made much of the main channel of the White River into lakes: Beaver, Taneycomo, and Bull Shoals. Can you still trace the path of the river?The North Fork of the White River was dammed to form Norfork Lake.
