Water Fun Facts
Jamaica has 26 watersheds. A watershed is the area of land around a river that drains in the river when the rain falls. This can occur through underground crevices as well.
Jamaica’s freshwater comes from rivers, streams, wells and springs as well as from harvested rainwater. The groundwater supplies about 80% Jamaica’s water.
Jamaica has about 120 rivers, most of which flow to coast from the central mountain ranges. Those on the north side tend to be shorter and swifter than those on the south side.
One of the first ever piped water supply systems in the Western Hemisphere originated in Jamaica, in the town of Falmouth, Trelawny. With the Martha Brae River as its source, in 1799 the Falmouth Water Works Company was established to supply the town of Falmouth and visiting ships.
