Early History of Valley Stream Excerpted and paraphrased: “50th Anniversary Book of Valley Stream” () – Howard Ruehl “Valley Stream 75 Years” – Bert Keller and Carol McKenna. As late as the s, there was no community of Valley Stream. All was farmland and woodland. Valleys are elongate depressions of Earth’s surface. Valleys are most commonly drained by rivers and may occur in a relatively flat plain or between ranges of hills or mountains. Those valleys produced by tectonic action are called rift valleys. Very narrow, deep valleys of similar appearance are. Drainage patterns. Per the lie of channels, drainage systems can fall into one of several categories, known as drainage depend on the topography and geology of the land.. All forms of transitions can occur between parallel, dendritic, and trellis patterns. Accordant versus discordant drainage patterns. A drainage system is described as accordant if its pattern correlates to the. Upper Rio Grande Valley. The region is in extreme western Texas, west of the Pecos River beginning with the Davis Mountains on the east and the Rio Grande to its west and south. The region is the only part of Texas regarded as mountainous and includes seven named peaks in .

Drainage Basins A stream is a body of flowing surface water of any size, ranging from a tiny trickle to a mighty river. The area from which the water flows to form a stream is known as its drainage of the precipitation (rain or snow) that falls within a drainage basin eventually flows into its stream, unless some of that water is able to cross into an adjacent drainage basin via. Side valleys are formed by tributaries to streams and rivers and feed the main stem. Where the main channel is carved deeper than the tributary, as commonly occurs during glaciations, the side. Streams and rivers form an essential link in the hydrological cycle and, in that capacity, provide freshwater for consumption and irrigation. Through their watershed, they also gather, convey and disperse almost any substance that enters water on land. Streams and rivers are thus central actors of environmental transport and fate. Then the lame will leap like a deer and the mute tongue will shout for joy. For waters will gush forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert. Isaiah I will open rivers on the barren heights, and fountains in the middle of the valleys. I will turn the desert into a pool of water, and the dry land into flowing springs. Isaiah
