a region well supplied with water or rich in water


Explanation:
"The region in north Germany is well supplied with flowing water, causing the plumage of the local goose population to develop extra large down feathers." You could also translate wasserlaeufen as running water, water courses or watersheds.

a fertile region


Explanation:
Since the geese thrive on the wealth of water and grow particularly thick down, I think fertile quite accurately expresses the sense in this context.
