The term watercourse includes (1) the channel or bed in which the water flows, (2) the stream of flowing water, and (3) springs, lakes, and marshes through which the waters of a stream flow and can be traced. The sine qua non of a watercourse is the stream of flowing water. The size of the stream and the velocity of the flow are immaterial. In some cases periodic or occasional flow may constitute a stream.
