Saluda (Poinsett) Watershed
Soon after World War II the Poinsett Reservoir was constructed to serve Greenville's growing population. The Poinsett Reservoir, also known as North Saluda, receives its water from the North Saluda tributary of the Saluda River. The watershed spans nearly 20,000 acres and contains all the land and stream tributaries that flow into the reservoir.
The Reedy River, which flows through downtown Greenville, is a tributary of the Saluda
