Indiana is a state with a diverse range of hydrological features, including major rivers like the Ohio, Wabash, and White, as well as numerous smaller tributaries and streams. The state's reservoirs and dams also play an important role in managing water resources and providing hydroelectric power. Climate conditions vary widely across Indiana, with hot, humid summers and cold winters. Precipitation is generally evenly distributed throughout the year, with occasional severe weather events like floods and droughts.
