The region here designated as the Upper Salt Creek Watershed lies almost entirely in southwestern Lancaster County about eight miles south of Lincoln, Nebraska, and comprises an area of some 168 square miles. However, approximately three square miles of the western edge of the watershed are located in Saline county. In order to facilitate the collection of data, the Lancaster-Saline County line is considered as the western boundary of the watershed and teh portion in Saline County is excluded from the study area. All other boundaries are the drainage divides that separate the watershed from the adjacent basins.
