Watersheds in Cheltenham Township

A watershed is made up of the land area that drains to a specific body of water, such as a tributary, stream or river. The topography of our local hills and valleys define the watershed boundary (catchment area) and the watershed outlet is the mouth of a pond, river or lake.  Cheltenham Township encompasses sections of four watersheds, namely:

  • Tookany/Tacony-Frankford
  • Jenkintown Creek
  • Wissahickon Creek
  • Mill Run
