Where water goes
on the way to the Gulf of Mexico when leaving Polk County.
South, East and West as far north as Fort
Smith. This is
a list of Rivers that water from Polk County travels on the way to the Gulf
The first nine
rivers have headwaters in Polk County: Kiamichi, Mountain Fork, Ouachita, Iron Fork, Saline,
Caddo, Cossatot, Little Missouri and Rolling Fork. Water from Polk County
also enters the headwaters of the Fourche LaFave. From these 10 rivers, waters mix into these
seven rivers: Poteau, Arkansas,
Mississippi, Red, Black, Tensas and Little, on
the way to the Gulf of Mexico.
This has to be
some kind of RECORD, nine headwaters and water entering the headwaters of the
tenth and flowing into seven more rivers.
With water exiting North, South, East and West, water enters the Arkansas over 75 miles north of Polk County
before turning east, then south.
