Tributaries of the Severn

What is a Tributary?

A affluente is a stream or river which flows into a parent river. The place where a tribuatary joins the parent river is called the confluenza.

Some tributaries are little more than trickles in the land, like the one seen at/near the source of the River Severn. Other tributaries are sizable rivers in their own right e.g. the River Avon

All tributaries drain water, along with any substances which might have dissolved in the water, such as silt, decaying organic material, and pollution from places like farms, sewage treatment plants, and factories built along the banks of the tributary.

The River Severn basin

As is the case with most rivers, nearly all of the water flowing in the River Severn originates from its tributaries. These streams and small rivers channel the rainfall and snowmelt from an area of 11,420 sq km / 4,409 sq miles ( the drainage basin of the River Severn)
