U.S. #1150
1960 4¢ Water Conservation 
 
Issue Date: April 18, 1960
City: Washington, D.C.
Quantity: 121,805,000
Printed By: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Giori Press
Perforations:  11
Color: Dark blue, brown orange, and green
 
U.S. #1150’s design illustrates the interdependence between water sources and water uses. The stamp was issued to call attention to the importance of water conservation throughout America. Part of the stamp’s design pictures a drop of water falling from a leaf into a pool of water, to highlight the importance of vital water sources. U.S. #1150 also shows both a town and farm, to symbolize their dependence on water.
 
This stamp was issued in conjunction with the seventh meeting of the Watershed Congress. The Watershed Congress was formed in 1951, and was eventually succeeded by the National Watershed Coalition (NWC) in 1989.  
 
Famous explorer/geologist John Wesley Powell defined “watershed” as, “that area of land…within which all living things are…linked by their common water course, and where, as humans settled, simple logic demanded that they become part of a community.”
