Blue Dot water bodies occur throughout the country. Though it is true that Blue Dots are more common along the western seaboard and in mountainous areas, they are present throughout in most counties.
There are 384 Blue Dot water bodies across the country. This is about 9% of all water bodies.
It is important that we think about the connectivity of water bodies as well as where they are in the country. Many of our coastal waterbodies are Blue Dots and these receive the water that flows out of our rivers and lakes. So even if the river near you is not a Blue Dot it might flow into Blue Dot water body further downstream. For this reason, we are all to some degree connected to and responsible for our Blue Dots.
