The Susquehanna River Watershed is the largest watershed in the United States that drains into the Atlantic Ocean, and the largest east of the Mississippi. It contains 27,500 square miles in New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. This includes 46% of the state of Pennsylvania, 20,900 square miles; 13% of New York, 6,300 square miles; and less than 1% of Maryland with 300 square miles.

Carol Parenzan can be found on, in, around, or near water. She watches over her section of the Susquehanna River with environmental, engineering, educational, and entrepreneurial eyes. In addition to earning a degree in environmental engineering with a focus in water from Penn State University, she has over 30 years of consulting experience, working with the engineering and environmental communities. Carol is an avid paddler and can be found throughout the watershed navigating her ultralight double-paddle canoe.
