Dragon Run Creek
The Dragon Run Creek watershed is located in eastern New Castle County. The 7.7-mile-long mainstem of the creek rises in a swampy area north of Lums Pond and flows due east to its outfall in the Delaware River. The Dragon Run is free flowing but has a tidegate at its mouth, allowing discharge to the Delaware River only at low tide. Thus, there are no tidal influences on Dragon Run.

The land use in the watershed is dominated by urban and agriculture uses.
