What drains water from the land around it?

homework on rivers and geography of North Carolina
Question asked by: bigben

Asked on: 26 Sep 2008

Water is drained from land around it either due to human intervention or geography.

If human intervention, there could be pumps and drains to siphon off water.

If natural, the gravity and water gradients do the trick - such as percolating through soil deeper into the earth through gravity, or through flowing off into rivers and streams etc.
