 A losing stream is one that "loses" water to the saturated zone. Along a losing stream, the water table may or may not be coincident with the surface of the stream depending upon the depth of the water table.
 
 
Water in the saturated zone flows away from a losing stream.
 
  Another term for a losing stream is an influent stream, i.e. water flows to the saturated zone to the stream. In this case, our frame of reference is the saturated zone where in the former it was the stream.
