Spreadsheet of Research for "Can you name the municipalities of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed?"
2
3
Cut off is 45,000 so as to be able to include 1 city in New York State
4
Cities / municipalities of note below cut-off will be bonus answers
5
Whether or not a place is "of note" is at my discretion (but basically if you're from either VA and MD, if you name a good-sized place that's in the watershed, it will show up)
6
Made sure most populous place in WV and DE were bonus answers (nothing even close to 45k within watershed in either state)
