The Eastern Continental Divide, in conjunction with other continental divides of North America, demarcates two watersheds of the Atlantic Ocean: the Gulf of Mexico watershed and the Atlantic Seaboard watershed. Prior to 1760, the divide represented the boundary between British and French colonial possessions in North America. The ECD runs south-southwest from the Eastern Triple Divide in Pennsylvania to the watershed of the Kissimmee River, which drains via Lake Okeechobee and the Okeechobee Waterway to both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean.

  • Die Östliche Kontinentale Wasserscheide (Eastern Continental Divide) befindet sich im Osten Nordamerikas. Sie trennt die Einzugsgebiete der Flüsse, welche in den Nordatlantik und in den Golf von Mexiko fließen. Direkt in den Atlantik münden eher kleinere Flüsse wie der Hudson River, der Potomac River oder der Savannah River, die in den Golf von Mexiko entwässernden Flüssen gehören meist zum Einzugsgebiet des Mississippi Rivers. Als größte Stadt liegt Atlanta auf der Östlichen Kontinentalen Wasserscheide.
